These Photos of C-Section Births Prove That Women’s Bodies Can Truly Withstand Anything
All birth stories are incredible tales to tell, that's for certain — and in recent years, more and more women are opening up about what it meant to them to have a C-section birth, thus normalizing the once-taboo topic. Every year, Birth Becomes Her — an international community of birth photographers created by Monet Nicole and Jennifer Mason — holds a birth photography contest in which these amazing photographers from all over the world can submit their work to be judged within specific categories. Even though they can't all be winners, every single submission to the contest was absolutely stunning, and the C-section birth photos in particular showcase how truly incredible birth and women's bodies are.
Ahead, see some of the most stunning C-section birth photos submitted to the contest, which will make you audibly say, "Whoa."
