That Very First Photo

I've started a new feature on Being Pregnant called That Very First Photo. Like I say over there, "There’s something so special about that photo, something so powerfully beautiful about seeing mom meet her baby for the first time. The expression on mom’s face, baby focusing on the woman whose body he has been in for nine months…I decided to solicit readers for their first photos and share them with you all."

You can check out the first edition of That Very First photo now. And from here on out, if you've got a photo you want to see featured, send it my way! You can send first photos that are true first photos, like this:

Actually, that's a lie. My true "first photo" with Henry is this one:

But see, that one includes nudity. Giant, floppy, pregnant boob nudity. Nobody needs to see that. You can send me a nude photo with a modesty patch or you can send me a photo where baby is cleaned up and you are smiling serenely, like so:

Look at me! Serene as a motherfucker. So yeah. Either way, I'd love to feature your photo. Email me at monicabielanko at yahoo dot com. In the meantime, as mentioned, check out the first edition of That Very First Photo including my first photos of Violet and Henry, it's what I'm babbling about today.
