Giving birth is probably one of the scariest things ever. Having a baby can be painful, stressful, physically and mentally exhausting. But once it’s over, happiness is the only feeling left.

Thaise De Mari shared a picture on her Instagram account that proves it and might be the happiest new family selfie ever. The picture shows her right after a C-section, her husband and their newborn baby girl all smiling and enjoying their first picture together.

This real, beautiful second captured in time is a reminder, that there’s nothing better than the moment of meeting your child.
