25 brilliant award-winning photos that capture birth’s magical moments


The 2019 International Association of Professional Birth Photographers have just shared the award winners for their annual competition … and they’re absolutely beautiful.

Entries slotted into four categories – labour, delivery, postpartum and birth details – it’s fair to say they capture the transformative nature of having a baby for everyone involved.

“I am so thrilled to be able to feature the tremendous talent of our members in the image competition this year,” founder Lyndsay Stradtner says. “I want to thank each and every IAPBP member who entered this year and, of course, the families who agreed to share their beautiful birth moments with the world.”
