Yet, when the ordeal is finally over, Paula expertly documents those intimate first moments between a mother and her newborn child.

After the birth of her now 17-year-old daughter, Paula, from Brazil, began taking photographs of women in Japan.

The remarkable photographs сарtᴜгe the tender first moments of a mother meeting her child.

Paula captures the instant a baby is born via C-section while still in the t s position.

“I am extremely content and satisfied. “Each birth provides a ᴜпіqᴜe set of emotions,” she said.

The 39-year-old has always been interested in photography and began working in her father’s studio when she was 16.

Paula followed in the footsteps of her father, brother, and grandfather, who are all photographers, by becoming a children’s photographer.

Then, in February 2001, Paula gave birth to Ingrid and invited her father to photograph the event.

A few days later, she viewed the photographs, and the emotions she experienced during childbirth return in full foгсe.

Paula decided at that instant that she wished to do the same for other caregivers.

Paula took her first photograph of a delivery room in October 2004 and hasn’t looked back since.
