I want to share these two stunning photographs of babies being born in the caul. The first is from a twin birth by photographer Leilani Rogers of www.photosbylei.com.*
The second photo was taken during a cesarean section and shared by Greek obstetrician Aris Tsigris.
I feel such a sense of awe and mystery when I look at these pictures. Even though I've had four children, I still wonder how they folded up inside. Seeing a baby born, yet not fully emerged, gives me a fleeting glimpse into the hidden life of the unborn baby.
This is me trying to figure out how Inga managed to fit inside of me.
