What Does A Beautiful Birth Look Like?

What does a beautiful birth look like? Yours. A beautiful birth is one where you made the best decisions for you and your baby.

Your birth was beautiful. My birth was beautiful. Her birth was beautiful. But not everyone seems to realize this. Too many people are too quick to pass judgment on others for their birth choice. I want to play a part in ending that. I want women to realize that their birth, whether c-section or vaginal, medicated or not, was beautiful.

To that end, I am creating a photo album entitled “Beautiful Births” to feature on my blog. I want pictures of all types of births - hospital birth, home birth, water birth, epidural birth, c-sections, unmedicated - every kind of birth there is. It is my hope that featuring births of all types in a positive light will help remove the stigma and judgment that women and families face for their birthing choices.

In order to create this album, I need your pictures. If you want to be a part of this project, please email your image to birthbeyondbias@gmail.com. Indicate whether you would like your name or any other attribution included with your picture or if you would like to remain anonymous. Watermarked pictures are welcome! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me! I look forward to featuring your pictures on my site!

In thanks for submitting your pictures, I would love to do a promotional Facebook post if you have a blog, page or business that you’d like featured on my page!
