One couple in the US have spent nine months working on a novel way of announcing the birth of their baby girl to the world.

The 90 second time-lapse video captures the progress of the woman’s belly from the moment the couple discovered they were pregnant – illustrated with a high five – to the birth of their daughter, Amelie Amaya.

The couple have been showered with compliments on their YouTube channel including this one from user, Britbrit910111, “Everything about this video is perfect including little baby Amelie!!!! Congrats and make more videos..youve got talent : )” and “This is the most beautiful video I have seen on you tube. Thanks for sharing,” from user, rumrasin1970

Thank you Erin.
