Best in the world: 6 absolutely stunning birth images
The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers have just annouced the winners of their “Image of the Year” competition for 2019.
All of the images depict the beauty, joy and reality of childbirth, in the most stunning way.
Please note: While birth is beautiful, it is also messy and real. You should expect nudity when viewing the entries.
