Here are the 20 winners of the contest for the most beautiful birth photo in 2018

We hear it very often, but the birth of a child is often one of the most beautiful moments of a life. Whether it's the maternity phase, childbirth or the weeks that follow, pregnancy and the arrival of the newborn are great moments in the life of a couple who deserve to be immortalized .

It is for this purpose that the community "Birth Becomes Her" was created. The goal: put forward the most beautiful birth pictures immortalized by talented photographers. Each year, this community of enthusiasts organizes a huge contest to reward the most beautiful photos ... and the winners of the 2018 edition just dropped.

In total, these are more than 1000 photographs which have been submitted to the selection of the jury. These have been divided into 5 categories: birth, thedelivery, the maternity, the postpartum (which corresponds to the period of life of a woman who intervenes right after delivery) and thefeeding. In each category, 3 winning photos have been designated as well asa public choice.

This year, it's the photographer Marijke Thoen who was awarded "Big winner" for his beautiful black and white photo that illustrates the arrival of a newborn child after a birth in the water, under the eyes of his curious big sister. We let you discover below the 20 most beautiful birth photos awarded at this exceptional photographic competition.
