This pregnancy photography series was put together by Brazilian photographer Gustavo Gomes. Gomes documented the process of his girlfriend Priscila entering into labor and undergoing home birth processes, and finally captured photographs of his daughter with her mother.

What makes this photo series so spectacular is the genuineness of it all. Gomes didn't look to edit the photos and hide the messy yet graceful and poignant process of labor. Priscila is depicted in all her glory and pain, something which may seem a little peculiar but was normal to the couple as they were both used to Gomes capturing their life at home on photo.

Ultimately, this pregnancy photography series tugs at the heart strings because of its genuine nature.
