Every single birth story is different…and every single person’s experience of labor is personal and unique. Birth photographers get to see it all, from quick labors that almost happen too fast…to long marathon labors requiring hours of waiting and patience.
These photos show some of the incredible things that happen during the labor process. Not just the strength of the person in labor, but also the emotion, love, and support coming from the nurses, doctors, friends, and family in the room.
We hope you are inspired by these emotional photographs of labor and birth. This selection of images and birth stories are from photographers all over the world, and families who have chosen to share their journey. Spend a moment in each image and marvel at the strength and beauty.
