Warning: Graphic images!

I was doing a bit of browsing, and I came across these amazing, and insightful pictures, by a photographer named Patti Ramos, and I thought I'd share them with you.

This is the baby's head crowning. Personally, I think it looks absolutely terrifying, but beautiful at the same time!

Here is another of the baby's head, this time a little further out. Look at that hair!

The baby's head is almost out in this picture, how amazing is this?!

And finally, the baby is out! After all the hard work you go through to get to this point, it must feel so rewarding to hear that cry, and at last, have your very own baby in your arms.

Look at the umbilical cord! I think this may be my favourite picture of them all. It really makes you think, that's the thing that has connected you, and your baby for the last 9 months. Amazing.

This one kind of grosses me out, and to be honest, I can't see the beauty in this one! But here it is, the placenta.

This is one from another collection of Patti's, and is a picture of the amniotic sac. In all honesty, I think it looks like a used condom. But that's just me!

And this, is probably the most graphic of all. Can you guess what it is? It's the uterus after a c-section. Here it is resting on the new mother's abdomen. The photographer notes that you can distinctively see the fallopian tubes on either side. Wow.
