Stock Photography for Birth Professionals
One of the best things you can do for your small birth business is use images that show your clients what you do. Photos not only convey your message instantly, they set the tone for your business brand and style.
Connect instantly with high quality clients by using high quality imagery on your website.
Show your Clients Instead of Writing Long Descriptions
Not only will investing in quality imagery set the right tone for your business, it will save you hours spent on trying to convey what you do to your clients through words. Use photos to communicate connection, support, and professionalism instantly.
Created by Professional Photographers
Our stock photography is created by professional birth photographers working in real life birth scenarios. The images they create are not staged or fake in any way, they are of real women and the real birth workers who support them.
Licensed Exclusively for Purchase through our Website
These photos are sold exclusively to birth professionals just like you. They are not available to huge corporations, mom-baby companies or hospitals. We want birth workers to have access to high quality, diverse, and educational birth images.
PLUS: New image collections released multiple times a year.

What kind of usage license is included with the photos?
These images can be used for birth professional website and/or social media ads. These images cannot be used for a print advertisement unless a print license is obtained (email us for more details on our print licensing).
The team at BBH works with you and your team to find the right photos and license for your specific birth needs.
What format do I receive the photos in?
Web resolution jpeg is standard. If you've obtained a print license, we’ll send you a full resolution jpg.
Are there any restrictions in using these photos?
Images can not be resold (either digital or printed). Images should not be cropped on website without photographer permission (we do allow for cropping on Instagram and/or Facebook covers.) If your web designer asks for a specific crop, please contact us for permission before preceding.
Images can only be used on the website or business social media page specified in your contract.
Print images should not be printed larger than 8 x 10 due to loss of quality. If you’d like to order a large print or canvas, please email us so that we can walk you through ordering your print through our printer.
How do I choose which images to use on my site?
If you're new to using professional photography on your website, we recommend starting with a strong home page image, then adding at least one on each additional page to further strengthen your message to clients. Think about your services as a whole, what type of image conveys the type of work you do? That should be your home page image. On your About page you might add an image of a midwife/doula smiling at a couple or mama to show connection. Choose a breastfeeding image if you offer lactation consulting.
Consider the message the images send, not just if you like it because it's a "nice picture." Browse the websites of other professionals you admire and see how they have used photos effectively (or not). If you still want help from an objective, outside designer, one of our team members can schedule a custom website consult with you (rates start at $55 for consulting with images purchased separately). Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
How often will you be adding new photos into the gallery?
We will be adding images quarterly. Enter your email below to be added to our Stock Photography VIP list; you'll be the first to know about new releases and receive exclusive discounts.
I'm not quite ready to purchase yet, can I favorite some images and come back later to buy them?
Your favorites are stored in our system for 30 days, after that you will have to reselect your choices. Also, with our new collections of images released every quarter, if you do not purchase before the turnover you will not be able to browse or purchase the same images. After spending your time narrowing down your favs, your best bet would be to commit to at least 1-2 of them and get to start using them right away!
Why buy through you instead of a big site like iStockphoto?
The Birth Becomes Her stock gallery is a robust collection of real birth images. We strive to make this collection as diverse and genuine as possible - showing real families giving birth in a variety of ways. These authentic images stand out amongst many of the stock images available on larger stock photography sites. We believe that by showing real images of birth, pregnancy, and beyond, you can better connect with your current and future clients. Additionally, we are a small, women-owned business, who seeks first and foremost, to promote the beauty and power of birth.
After looking through the gallery I don't see quite what I'm looking for.
