Birth photos are a beautiful celebration of life and should be able to be shared.
We need to start educating people that birth images are not sexual, the same as breastfeeding photos are not sexual. Unfortunately most people are conditioned by their parents about how they feel about their body and about sex, birth and breastfeeding. Teenagers watch horrifying birth videos that portray a woman screaming and body fluids and blood everywhere to try and scare them into not having sex and falling pregnant - well we know that doesn't work - it just makes the birth experience later on a fearful experience. We have to start teaching our children from a very young age about their body, using the correct terminology for their anatomy, and then providing education and resources about pregnancy, labour and birth in a way that is positive and not fearful. red prom dresses 2019
