I started this ongoing series after recently becoming a mother myself during lockdown. I found myself drawn to examine the experiences of pregnancy and motherhood, with all its hopes and anxieties, its mythology and belief systems across a diverse collection of volunteer mothers.
I didn’t feel myself adjust to motherhood as quickly as I perceived other mothers to. Perhaps this was due to my fear of childbirth and also being separated from my baby in the NICU for five days post birth due to being exposed to Covid on the ward.
I feel like this project is an exploration of my experience of motherhood. I wanted to capture natural moments, intimacy in parenthood, the potentiality of pregnancy, all while understanding my own path in this new world.
