After delivery, the baby must go through a series of routine tests and procedures to assess its general condition, including clamping and cutting the ᴜᴍʙɪʟɪᴄᴀʟ ᴄᴏʀᴅ, as well as the Aᴘɢᴀʀ ᴛᴇsᴛ. These tests are performed by the medical team that assisted in the delivery.
However, in the case of one mother in particular, this was not the case, since it was she herself, as a nurse, who carried out those first tests after giving birth to her own baby. To sample the incredible photographs those have allowed us to share.
According to the publication on the Instagram account of Alexandria Mooney, the photographer who captured this moment, one day before the delivery, while they were talking about what would happen, the mother shared that she wanted to be the one to do the first tests on her baby.
