There’s apparently a slowly growing trend for photographers to capture every moment of your baby’s life, right down from when they first appear into the world.
A lady called Shelley Brinkley is in today’s papers who declares that it is great to see your child born yourself, and has a PG version that she shows out to friends and family.
We’ve certainly come a long way from years ago when nobody was allowed in and the husband had to pace up and down wearing the floor out outside the delivery room. Seeing anything would have just been wrong.
Nowadays, not only can the father be in the delivery room, you can get the world, his dog, and a photographer click clacking away in the corner to watch every moment of the baby about to shoot out of your bits and share the moment to the world.
You want to put it on a dvd? Great, yes we can do that. Pull up a chair, grab your popcorn and watch a baby shoot out of your relative’s fuff. We’ll make a cinema night of it.
That a bit too graphic? They do PG versions too, you can just share your crucial bonding moments and baby falling asleep on you at the skin to skin contact moment and you looking like death warmed up and thinking “thank ***** that’s out of me at last.”
(Or maybe that’s just me.)
Is nothing sacred anymore?! Come on people. I’m all for sharing via media (heck, I’m on the internet often enough) but some things you just need to draw the line at.
Some things mean a whole lot more when they’re something special between you and your partner……
What do you think?!
