The best international photos of 2020 of childbirth and postpartum in its purest form

One more year, ‘Birth Becomes Her’ wants to celebrate the unique birth experience through empowering images and a positive and uplifting community.

So we have received the gallery of photographs that have been sent by birth photographers from all over the world. They invite us to enjoy an impressive series of photographs that reflect the most beautiful moments of childbirth and postpartum and encourage us to vote for the favorites. You have until February 15 to decide. It will be difficult because they are all spectacular.

They explain from this international photography contest, that currently the judges are evaluating the winning images among the 400 selected. Here we include some of the most powerful, in our opinion, because it is really difficult to choose. But you can see the entire gallery in the 2020 Image Selection, under ‘Birth Becomes Her’.
