Call it a mom roar or a birth roar, that sound echoing through the maternity ward is just a bit more proof that birthing women are some of the most powerful beings on earth. As they do the hard work to bring a baby earth side, many women find it helpful, effective, and even cathartic to let out a loud howl from within. Several birth photographers from around the world have captured the magical moment when a laboring mom finds that might deep down within and brings it forth. The images aren't just powerful ... they're primal.
