12 Amazing Photographs Capturing The Miracle Of Childbirth

Lena C

To many, the genuine moment of a child's introduction to the world is the most exciting, wonderful, and important in our existence on the planet. Most would affirm that no author can articulate this experience, no artist can place it into tune, and no individual can sufficiently clarify it.
In its unique way, childbirth is miraculous. 

The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP) held a competition on their annual Image of the Year. The theme of the competition was the miracle that is childbirth. 
Here are the 12 more incredible and beautiful photos:
