Having a photographer present is a very personal decision, and one that isn't right for everyone. The association also runs an annual competition where photographers can submit their best images taken during labor, delivery, or the moments postpartum, and the results are truly moving. The images submitted show a huge range of choices women make for themselves when it comes to childbirth. Some choose to deliver in hospitals, others at home or in a birthing center. The people present may vary from just a partner to a team of medical professionals, a doula, a midwife, siblings, grandparents, and other loved ones. Because birth involves women literally pushing a brand-new human out of their vaginas, some of the images below contain nudity and may be considered NSFW. But trust us, they're worth looking at. Here are just 17 of the stunning moments captured by birth photographers this year. Marijke Thoen Geboortefotografie. Natalia Walth Photography.

Selena's photographs of women giving birth over the past few years have been removed from Instagram in the past for being too graphic - these are the photographs Instagram didn't want you to see, a gallery of childbirth images previously banned from the app for being pornographic.
