Dad Captures Mom Hearing Baby’s Cry for the First Time and It’ll Bring Tears to Your Eyes

Everyone deserves a partner this supportive

Some moments in life are unforgettable. They can be big or small, but they're moments when your life is changed forever. A perfect example? Hearing your newborn baby cry for the first time. It's the kind of experience that stays with you forever, but thanks to a partner with a camera, one mom really does get to relive hearing her first baby cry for the rest of her life.

In this video from @iamyelikzakeen, we see a mom having a Cesarean section (C-section). She's already been through 24 hours of labor and 5 hours of pushing, and she's more than ready to meet her new baby girl. We see her partner telling her he loves her, and the mom waiting anxiously behind the sheet. And then, we hear the baby cry...and the look on the mom's face is priceless.


So incredibly beautiful. What a moment! And it's captured forever. There are so many emotions going through her face, from joy to relief to excitement, and she goes through them all in about half a second. We're watching somebody realize she's a mom for the very first time! As she wrote: "Hearing your baby cry for the first time hits different," and that's true for sure.

Commenters found this mom so relatable, including quite a few women who are expecting babies themselves...
"The presence of your significant other being has sooo much more effect than you think"
"Me sobbing at home 36 weeks"
"Girllllll i was in that same position its like i couldnt stop worrying & crying.. untill i heard that cry! Godbless!"
"i had mine via emergency c section Wednesday, i was so out of it ans couldnt do anything but cry when i heard his cries "

Such an emotional experience! Perhaps the most emotional experience anyone can ever have. Congrats, mama!
