Nearly 1,000 beautiful images were submitted to Birth Becomes Her for its annual Birth Photography Contest, and it's safe to say that 2018's winners are some of the most stunning birth and labor photos we've ever seen.
"These images were taken around the world, featuring births at homes, hospitals, and birth centers," the winners page reads. "We believe that images of birth are inspiring and life-changing. We're thrilled to share this collection with you."
We couldn't agree more — check out the winners in the birth and labor categories below (and check out the maternity, breastfeeding, and postpartum winners on Birth Becomes Her).
