Babies usually arrive screaming and wailing but this newborn girl is not having any of it. Instead, Isabela Pereira de Jesus appears to angrily stare at the obstetrician who delivered her via Caesarean section.
The photo was taken at a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by snapper Rodrigo Kunstmann who says childbirth is a unique moment that deserves to be captured.
Isabela’s parents Daiane and Renato Pereira da Rocha had not planned on having a baby and discovered the pregnancy after five weeks.
However, shortly afterward Daiane found out she had a subchorionic hematoma, which is an accumulation of blood between the placenta and the uterus, and was at risk of losing her baby.
Fortunately, she went on to have a ‘peaceful pregnancy’ and Daiane said Rodrigo’s picture captured Isabela’s determined personality.
Speaking to Brazilian news outlet G1, she said:
“My baby was born courageous. It’s a meme already.
“She always wrinkles her forehead when changing diapers and nursing. Isabela was supposed to be born on the 20th, but she chose her day already showing her personality.”
When Rodrigo shared the image on his Facebook page it went viral with more than 4,000 likes and hundreds of comments from amused fans from across the world.
Many Facebook users commented on what could have been on the mind of Isabela.
“So Trump’s still in office, huh?”
“Baby look like she is annoyed as she was enjoying being where she was. Cute. Great picture.
A third person joked:
“This is a baby who knows how messed up the world really is.”
Speaking to Brazilian publication Crescer, Rodrigo said:
“She opened her eyes wide and didn’t cry, she made a ‘sulky’ face, her mother gave a kiss and it was only after they cut the umbilical cord that she started to cry.
“When I posted it, I thought it would have the potential to become a meme, but it’s always a matter of luck.”
