These Powerful NSFW Photos From The 2017 Birth Photo Competition Prove That Moms Are Badass
SPONSORED

I remember the quote by Larry Barretto: "Babies are bits of star-dust blown from the hand of God. Lucky the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star."

I 100% agree with this fact. Today, let's talk about the importance of birth photography. Of late, the world has started capturing the moments of child birth. And taking photographs on this occasion has become as important as taking pictures of one's engagement and wedding.

And yes, The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers contest was one of a kind. The Association has announced the winners of their contest, and the photos they chose show the struggles mothers go through to bring new life into the world. Not to forget the sheer joy that follows cannot be described in mere words.

Each picture tells a story of pain, perseverance, and finally, relief. The pictures document a baby's first moments of life, and they are beautiful.
