  • Image of Pantomime Horse, Russian Doll, Egg by Sally Jenkinson

A poem cycle about giving birth. A creative response to the seemingly improbable and yet utterly commonplace act of somehow producing a human from your body. A rollercoaster ride of viscera and vulnerability, exploring the agony and the ecstasy of an everyday accouchement.

‘It is a hard thing to write a blurb for a piece of work which holds your face and heart so steady, daring you to also see into and through the abyss that is birth. These poems are an immediate weaving of worlds – past and present, home and hospital, power and surrender – all intimate and all universal.’
Deanna Rodger
