Denver-based photographer Moët Nicole beautifully captured the essence and beauty of the umbilical cord in these captivating images.


Celebrating birth is an incredible thing, but when it’s captured in pictures, it takes it to a whole new level. Photographer Monet Nicole from Denver captured the beauty of the umbilical cord in these images.

Check out these beautiful and amazing birth photos which feature the umbilical cord. The umbilical cord nurtured and kept your baby alive for 9 months, and it is truly amazing, yet it is often not celebrated or photographed.

I wish that I had managed to capture my births so beautifully. These photos are truly magical.

As a birth photographer, Monet Nicole is fascinated by change. Giving birth is perhaps one of the greatest human transformations… both for the mother and the baby. So much change happens in such a short period of time.

The umbilical cord is the life force for the baby in the womb. It carries oxygen and nutrients from the placenta into the baby’s bloodstream. It pulses, just like a heartbeat, and sometimes you can hear it on a doppler.

Although umbilical cords all serve the same function: to nourish and sustain the baby… they can look drastically different.
