One of the key elements to a strong homebirth message,is a resource of powerful, compelling birth images. The professional entries in our photography competition do great justice to the medium. Some of these photos go straight to the heart of why we do what we do. These birth photographers showcase their skill and talent so beautifully. It made our job very hard. As well as cash prizes these three photographers will receive a feature article in out Home Birth Matters magazine.
