    Default Birth photos

    Where would you display them? Living room, babies room, play room, only hidden in an album. They are graphic but so amazing I had a doula and she is a professional photographer too at the birth. Some could be text book on how to get the cord from around a babies nexk or how to support the head so mom won't tear my face is not in any of them. They are pasword protected but if anyone wants to see them let me know and I can send you the link and password.

    Would it be inappropriate to make a scrap book of them for the midwife that delivered they are her hands at work?

    I am not sure about where to display them I am kinda personal about that stuff but I also know how important those pics are to you. I would scrap them. I did this but made a card that said cens. over the one graphic pic I had. I will look for the page in photobucket if you want and post it.

    I think scrapping them for her would be great. I have a friend that is a doula and would bet she would LOVE that. I can ask her if you want.

    Not sure about displaying the pics though..I'd just put them wherever you feel comfortable.

    I think scrapping them for the midwife would be really nice. As for where to display them, if they are the actual birth as well as the right afters, personally i would put them in an album but that is what I would do in my house.

    I would do the album for the doula, as for displaying them, I think do what you're comfortable with, but don't be surprised if other people may be uncomfortable with them on display (even if you're comfortable with displaying them). For example - a friend of mine's dh is a painter, and he did a nude portrait of his wife ... and put it up in their living room. It's not sexual at all, and if it hadn't been of my friend, I don't think it would have made me uncomfortable, but it did because I didn't want to see my friend in the nude. But it's YOUR house, and you'll be the one looking at them wherever you display them, so do what YOU feel comfortable with!

    Well we didn't get any birth photos because of my emergency c-sec, and then DH wasn't allowed in b/c I had to be put under, but if I had any I would be putting them in an album.

    I would like to see them. I closed my eyes during pushing (damn) with all 3 births. I did attend my grandson's birth and it was beautiful.

    I agree with the majority here and say that an album for them for sure but display them and it will likely make some people uncomfortable. If you don't care so much about that then go ahead its your house and your body. I understand how important these photos must be for you. A scrapbook for the midwife I think is a lovely idea. I would love to see the finished result of that.
