Few rites of passage are more demanding on the minds and bodies of couples as going through pregnancy. It is a period that requires intense emotional strength and a whole lot of love and support. In a sweet, introspective series of photos taken by Russian documentary photographer Jana Romanova, titled Waiting, couples are photographed in moments of sleep, demonstrating the emotional connection that is shared even when they are not aware. In most of the photos, the women lie on their sides as many would expect a pregnant mother to do, but almost heartwarmingly, their partners seem to always place a hand by their bellies, suggesting that paternal protection extends beyond the conscious realm. More shots in the series can be seen here.
