Mamas-to-be, YES — this is the moment you’re waiting for. The split second of amazement when you meet your baby for the first time and your hearts bursts open wide.
This gorgeous shot was captured by a former midwife named Jane McCrae. Babble.com reports that the photo has won National Geographic’s 2011 Photo of the Year contest (love it!!), though National Geographic still has voting up on its site. Since it’s unclear which is the most recent and accurate, vote for it if you love it!
We’d love to hear from you, mamas— can you describe what it was like when you met your baby for the first time? Share below by Dec. 1, then we’ll randomly choose one to win a free yoga class at Blooma!
