We were so impressed with Barbie's home birth photographs that we contacted the woman at the helm of this project, professional maternity and birth photographer Katie Moore of Beach Birth Photography. See what Katie shares about her project, and why she chose Barbie as her model after the jump.
Inhabitots: What was the inspiration behind your idea to photograph Barbie giving birth at home? Why did you choose Barbie as your model?
Katie Moore: It is my duty as a human being who cares about the future of birth to spread the word of Evidence Based Maternity Care. That is why I chose Barbie. Barbie is a strong woman. No matter what your opinion of her is, you cannot deny that she has done it all. In this day and age, I believe that Barbie would have educated herself on her birth options. This is what women today need to do. Whether a home birth or hospital birth, women need to start taking control of their own health and birth experience.
