34 Immensely Powerful Award-Winning Photos Showing The Beauty Of Birth

"A new baby is like the beginning of all the things hope, wonder, a dream of possibilities" - Eda J. Le Shan

Indeed! A baby is not less than a blessing. I can feel that joy in my parent's eye when they share the story of my birth. They were all excited to touch me, kiss me, love me, adore me, cuddle me. All they ever want is my happiness. 

Recently, I saw a photographer Leilani Rogers collection depicting the immense beauty of the birth in her project. After watching 50 birth's, she showcased her 20 favorite pictures of them. 

Also, The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP) declared the winners of its annual Image of the Year Contest. Decided by a council of judges, the winning photos showcase the emotion, pain, and beauty of several birth experiences.

The official announcement states, "Birth photography encompasses the tears of joy, the wonder of bringing a new life into the world and celebrates family."
