AUS­TRALIA’S most cel­e­brated baby pho­tog­ra­pher, Anne Ged­des, hosts this emo­tional six-part doc­u­men­tary se­ries on preg­nancy.

Af­ter years of pho­tograph­ing naked ba­bies perched on pump­kins and cupped in cab­bages, the 55-year-old Syd­ney-based pho­tog­ra­pher has now pointed her lens at moth­ers.

The se­ries delves into the lives of nine women.

‘‘ The mes­sage is if you’re preg­nant and you live in a palace, or if you’re preg­nant and you live in a refugee camp in Su­dan . . . the process is the same and you’re still con­cerned about the same things within your body,’’ Ged­des said.

She said get­ting her sub­jects to pose was far eas­ier this time round, as they could fol­low in­struc­tion.

Tonight we meet 27-year-old triplets, who all fell preg­nant at the same time be­fore two of them had their ba­bies on the same day.

Their story is as beau­ti­ful as the pho­tographs Ged­des pro­duces. My Preg­nancy, 7TWO, Satur­day, 4.25pm
