A Dad Delivered His Twins After Climbing Into The Bath To Help His Partner During A Water Birth
A father has been captured delivering his own twins during a water birth in a gorgeous new series of images.
Robin Baker, a Temecula, California-based birth photographer and doula, snapped the images of the unnamed couple in a poignant photo shoot on February 24th that captured every step of the water birth process – which happened so quickly that their birth team couldn’t get there in time.
The photographer calls the moment “one of the most amazing moments of my career,” and one of the shots was even the winner of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers’ 2016 Photo of the Year contest.
While snapping photos and helping the mother cope with contractions, doula Robin helps prepare the space as labor speeds up so quickly that the birth team doesn’t even have time to come in for the process.
However, the group was able to talk to the doctor on the phone and in the end, “The parents were calm and peaceful and brought their babies into the world effortlessly.”
