Take a look at these powerful photos to see the raw emotions of child birth
Photos from the annual Birth Becomes Her competition are in, and this year’s entries are just as awe-inspiring as those from 2018.
Judges had to choose from 1,200 images sent in from photographers across the globe, the highest number of entries the competition has ever seen.
Founded by birth photographers Monet Nicole and Jennifer Mason in 2014, who themselves have photographed nearly 400 births, the online community aims to increase the accessibility of birth photography to expectant parents and photographers.
‘Here at Birth Becomes Her, we believe there is power in seeing and sharing images of birth,’ a statement reads on the founders’ website.
We believe that the birth photography industry will only continue to grow as more and more families realise that there is nothing more valuable than preserving memories from the very best days of your life.’
