A photographer has captured the wondrous, miraculous moment of birth - in all its raw and unglamourised glory.


Taken before a mother has seen her baby for the first time these amazing photographs show the reality of how we all enter this world.

The warts and all pictures are the work of respected Danish photographer Suste Bonnen who was given unprecedented access to mothers while they were in labour.

2 grandsons...ages 7 and 12..

All boys! I had three sons, but got 4 granddaughters and 3 grandsons. The rest are step-grandchildren, and children. Pat has 3 sons, 3 grandsons, and one granddaughter. Then, he has two great-granddaughters and one great-grandson. They are all like my own, so Christmas is costly. Next year, I'm having a cut off. Once you graduate from HS, the party is over! LOL! Maybe I will just do birthdays!

Best wishes for the new baby.  They grow up too darn fast!

The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

That was my thought when I had three sons. Didn't want to try for a girl, and get more boys. They kept me hopping, but I have no regrets. They come in handy as men! LOL!
