Pregnancy is a beautiful experience for both the parents. While most couples lean towards professional help for childbirth, there are few who prefer the natural method which has been utilized by our ancestors since centuries for delivery.
However, there are many people out there who are intrigued by the mystery which occurs behind the closed doors of home birth. Hence, Brazil based photographer Gustavo Gomes took it upon himself to disclose the sheer stunning-ness of it. He documented the 20-hour long labor of his partner and shared it with the world.
Home birth is nothing but beautiful in every sense of the word.
Striking is one of the word which can be used to define these picture.
The rates of natural births have decreased drastically in Brazil.
The Atlantic health website shows that Brazil has the highest rate of caesarean in the entire world. Therefore, it is a matter of concern. Gustavo explains that many women choose the option for the mere convenience for the doctor and there is no medical reason behind it.
Hence, Gustavo did this photo project.
He anticipates that his project will help to discard the mysterious veil surrounding the home birth and encourage women to go for it, instead of c-section unless it is a medical necessity.
Beautiful through and through.
He captured the photographs of his partner Priscilla in a stunning manner, showing that although homebirth is painful but nevertheless, it is equally rewarding.
