The ability for women to carry a child in their womb for nine months is pretty miraculous. Can you imagine actually remembering what your developing self felt like while in that small area for near to a year? It's a pretty strange concept to try to fathom, but one photographer gives us a closer glimpse at exactly what it might have been like.
Marry Fermont is a birth photographer in Middelburg, Netherlands whose main goal is to capture parents meeting their child in the delivery room for the very first time. And while many people, new moms and dads included, may be wondering exactly how a baby looks while tucked up in the womb for so long, these images may help answer the question.
"It's so hard to imagine that this perfect little human being was inside you," Fermont said to TODAY Parents.
"To actually see how your baby was positioned in you is just a little magic. The photos are simple and pure."
"It's a really short moment in life and so precious," Fermont noted.
"It makes it just a little more special if the dad does it," Fermont said. "After nine months, his child fits exactly in his hand like it was in the belly. There's nothing more special, if you ask me."
