There’s something magical about the birth of twins, and these photos give a breathtaking glimpse into the world of multiples.
From mums nursing one baby while still birthing the other, to the the special bond twins display during their first moments on earth – these are some of the world’s most beautiful twin images.
Twins In The Spotlight
We have to thank Birth Becomes Her for tracking down these heartwarming photos. Jennifer Rainey Mason and Monet Nicole Moutrie put the callout to their vast network of birth photographers from across the globe to send through their best twin captures. And the images didn’t disappoint!
“Birth photography continues to grow each year, and we believe that it will only grow more popular in the years to come,” Monet told The Healthy Mummy. “More and more families are realising just how transformative, powerful, and beautiful birth is…and they’re deciding to hire a birth photographer to capture those incredible moments and emotions.
Monet explains that while twin births can be challenging to photograph, birth photographers never shy away from a challenge!
“Many twin births take place in the operating room, and gaining access can sometimes be difficult. Thankfully, more and more hospitals are recognising the importance of allowing a birth photographer back into the operating room. The images allow mum to see the birth of her babies…which is something that every birthing person deserves!”
Here are some of the best images chosen by Monet, with her insights into each moment.
