Come and see how babies fit and play in the womb.
Marry Fermont, an award-winning birth photographer in the Netherlands, started taking pictures of babies immediately after their birth to document what they look like in utero. Her pictures testify to the humanity of the unborn child and show parents how babies snuggled inside just moments before.
Marry’s experience is that, “The babies are mostly totally relaxed in this pose. They feel secure and comfortable. They are used to being folded up this way the last few weeks.”
But don’t let this restful pose take our focus off the purposeful activity that has gone up until this point in the mother’s womb! Let’s see what the babies themselves have to tell us.
