Instagram bans Sunshine Coast photographer for baby snaps

It seems Instagram isn’t a fan of shots celebrating the miracle of life.

Sunshine Coast photographer Melissa Jean Wilbraham – who is renowned for her photos of pregnant women, child birth and breastfeeding – had her instagram account disabled on Saturday for apparently violating the site’s terms.


Users of the social media site must not post ‘violent, nude, partially nude, discriminatory, unlawful, infringing, hateful, pornographic or sexually suggestive photos or other content’.

Melissa told the Daily Mail that finding out her account had been disabled “was like being punished for celebrating the miracle of life.

Fortunately, Melissa’s friends started strong social media campaign and her Instagram account has since been restored.
