I am starting to work on a baby album photobook for my twins.

My husband took this awesome birth photo of Baby B, and I can’t decide whether or not to include it in the album. The photo captures the moment she was born and before we clipped the cord. So, it is kind of graphic.

In the photo, she is crying and covered in blood, held by my OB’s surgical glove-covered hands, with her umbilical cord still attached to her belly button.

The photo is cropped so that you can only see the baby. You can’t see me but it is obvious that the cord is not cut. Plus, again, she is covered in blood because that is how she was born.

Anyway, I think it is an amazing photo but my gut says to leave it out of the album because it is graphic.
