Would you hire a photographer to take pictures of the moment you give birth?

A new trend means that is what more and more women in Cornwall are doing.

Mum of two Abi Lunn from Truro says the black and white snaps help her remember the arrival of her second child.

She told Pirate FM: "Nothing is particularly gruesome or horrible. My family have seen the photographs and so have a lot of my friends. There's only my bum on it and, as photographs of my bottom go, they aren't that bad.

"I remember a lot more of it I think, because of them. They're like a little memory cue I suppose. Loads of it comes back. I used to look at them every day for ages. I still can't look at them without crying."

Critics say it is a private moment that should stay private.

But a number of professional photographers in the Duchy are now offering it as a service to expectant mums.

They include Rebecca Caroline from Bambino Art Photography. She explained that the idea came from her own experience having her first child: "When I had him I had preeclampsia and I was very poorly. I ended up having an emergency section and I can't really remember him being born at all. I can remember him being poked over the curtain at me, screaming, and then him being whisked away to the neonatal unit. And that was it.

"At the end of the day birth is painful. I'm not there to make out it isn't. But you can pick and choose what you take photos of so you can show the amazing parts of it. You're not showing the lady screaming her head off and it all being awful, that isn't what it is."
