2019 Birth Becomes Her Image Contest

With over 1200 images from dozens of countries around the world, the 2019 Birth Becomes Her Image Contest was our biggest yet…and we couldn’t have been more inspired by the births you shared! Here at Birth Becomes Her, we believe there is POWER in seeing and sharing images of birth. We believe that the birth photography industry will only continue to grow as more and more families realize that there is nothing more valuable than preserving memories from the very best days of your life.

MEDIA INQUIRIES: Please email us at birthbecomesher@gmail.com if you would like to publish a story on the contest.
