Submit a birth story

We invite you to submit a birth story for consideration of publication on our website.

Please read and follow these suggestions carefully when submitting your birth story:

  1. Virginia Birth Photographers is a non-exclusive blog/website meaning birth stories featured elsewhere may be considered. However, top priority will be given to stories submitted exclusively to us.
  2. Please consider voice, grammar, and proper punctuation. All submitted material will be edited for spelling and grammar.
  3. If images submitted are not original to you, they must be properly sourced.
  4. We require a short bio and allow links to your website and social media outlets.

We reserve the right to reject an article if we feel it does not match our goals or the voice of Virginia Birth Photographers. Content will remain as untouched as possible, but if we feel the content or tone should be modified, we will contact you to discuss it before posting.
