59 Strong NSFW Images From The 2017 Birth Photo Contest Demonstrate that Moms are Badass


The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers has revealed the contest’s 2017 winners, and the images they selected highlight both the joy and challenges moms experience during childbirth.

These fresh photographs will make you even more astounded than we did with the contest from last year. Every single one of them narrates a tale of suffering, tenacity, and, in the end, relief. They capture the early stages of a baby’s existence as well as the beginnings of a family’s bond.

Reader caution is suggested since many of the following images are strong and explicit. But they are all strong in their own particular ways.
