I collaborated with a team to deliver Body as part of the Creative Birth Programme with a group of pregnant women about at the Zen yoga centre, Camberwell, London. The workshop comprised of  a yoga and meditation session, contemporary dance, and a talk about the pregnant body by midwife and artist Laura Godfrey Issacs. My contribution to the workshop included a talk about the representation of the pregnant body in contemporary arts practice and a series of drawing exercises that focussed upon recording and documenting  memories, feelings and experiences in relation to the pregnant body.

The art hour was amazing – I really enjoyed seeing all the pieces of artwork on pregnant women. I was surprised at everything that came out when we did our drawings. The next day I felt such peace and in a positive space.
