Wow! See what happens to a baby's head during birth

Photographer  Kayla Reeder tells stories using images. When babies are born, what you see  is a beautifully round shaped head but that's not what happens as they try to make their way out. The head changes to different shapes as shown below to enable baby slide out with ease. Kayla captured a baby's birth from when it crowned to when the newborn dropped out of the veejayjay and it's something to behold. Read and see below...Earlier this year on Valentine's Day, Kayla was called to document the birth of Chris and Nikki's son.
The resulting images show one truly fascinating aspect of childbirth.
Often what happens with a vaginal birth is the baby will emerge with a head that's not quite round, owing to its skull being soft and flexible.
This is what happened in the instance of Nikki and Chris's little boy, and Kayla was on hand to capture it.
"Nikki let me know she was in labour on Valentine's morning," the photographer tells Mirror Online.
"With her first daughter she was in labour for 36 hours so we thought this might take a little bit longer. She went about her morning as usual.
"A little later she decided to make her way to the hospital."
Things moved quickly from this point on.
Nikki was kept in and because of the length of time the drive would take, Kayla raced there.
"I pull in the parking lot 45 minutes later and her mom calls me, she's 9cm dilated.
"I make my way up stairs with haste. She's had an epidural so the room is calm (much different than earlier I was told!
"Graham was perfect in every way. Right down to his little cone head.
"The molding on Graham’s head was extra dramatic because of his position," Kayla explains.
"His head was tilted a bit to the side so the molding isn't centered and it caused his mama to push for a bit longer than if he would have been in a better position.
"Soon after birth the molding went down and by few days old he had a perfectly shaped head.
