From pregnant to birth in 90 seconds: Touching time-lapse video shows how mother-to-be changes over time
14:23 GMT, 11 March 2012
A woman and her partner spent nine months working on a video project to document her pregnancy with heartwarming results.
Their time lapse video, simply called Introducing, shows her midriff grow from a rather toned and flat belly to an oversized protrusion towards the end of her pregnancy and, finally, the arrival of their beautiful baby girl.
The well-produced video condenses the whole nine-month experience into just 90-seconds.
There she is! The couple pose with their baby daughter after putting together an epic nine-month video project
Kiss of life: The woman's partner kneels down to plant his lips on her belly at the beginning of the video
It begins with the woman standing up waiting for her partner, who enters the room and plants a kiss on her flat tummy.
They then high-five each other, presumably a rather innocent way to illustrate the conception of their baby girl.
When he leaves the room she turns to the camera and points at her stomach.
Box clever: Midway through the video the couple move house, presumably to gain extra space for their forthcoming arrival
Growth spurt: The woman's belly begins to get bigger in their new home
We then see a time lapsed set of scenarios as her stomach grows and their pet cats and dogs disappear and reappear in the room around her.
At one point the couple move house, at which time the woman's partner picks her up and carries her across the threshold of their new abode.
He then disappears and leaves her to continue to grow.
Nearly there! The lady's tummy continues to grow, entering the final stages of the pregnancy
Lip service: The couple kiss in the final section of the video
Finally, when she appears about ready to pop, he returns once more – she signals at her watch that it's time for someone new to join them.
Again getting down on his knees the man kisses the woman's belly.
This time however, as he kisses her, their baby daughter pops out.
Special delivery: The man prepares to bring his daughter into the world
Then they bring her closer to the camera for her first ever close up and her name, Amelie Amaya, flashes up on the screen.
YouTube users have been quick to commend the couple for their nine-month long project.
One user, named alfacinhotube, wrote: 'Beautiful! A well-conceived, wonderfully executed documentation of a magnificent moment in your lives. Thanks for sharing!'
It's a girl: Amelie Amaya is introduced to the world
While a woman with the user name Malleolust said: 'I'm 7 months pregnant with my first child, a son. This made me cry. Can I blame hormones… Little Amelie, be blessed.'
And even one male viewer said the video brought him to tears, matstrick wrote: 'Beautiful… You just brought a grown man to tears!'
