Even though birth is something as natural as can be since we all wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for that, yet the topic is still quite a taboo. However, a resource for birth photographers named “Birth Becomes Her” tries to shine a light on the topic by holding an annual birth photography contest. The founders, Monet Moutrie and Jennifer Mason launched the contest back in 2016 after being convinced that birth photography is some of the most powerful documentary photography in our world and this incredible birth photography work deserves to be showcased. “We hope that these images help dispel fear,” Mason added. Even though their general idea was to highlight breastfeeding photos during World Breastfeeding Week back in 2016, they evolved it into a labor contest after that. Even though they only had a couple hundred submissions in the first year, the contest grew and received well over 1,200 submissions from all over the world this year.
