Birth through the Second Womb

Photo and caption by Guy Lieberman

The birth of our first child, Zohar, was captured at the moment of her entry in the water of the birthing pool. She had not yet taken her first breath; we were preparing to settle ourselves and slowly surface her, transitioning gently from water to air, from one world to another, an elemental shift. She was submerged for around one minute. The moment was captured without a flash, the soft light of the room reflecting off the water's surface. Zohar seemed to know exactly where to look.

Location: Genesis Natural Birthing Clinic, Johannesburg, South Africa
