NativityHub at Union 105, Chapeltown

NativityHub at Union 105 was an interdisciplinary birthing hub for women and their families, artists and birthworkers in and around the Chapeltown area of Leeds who came together to learn, teach, collaborate and play.

Bringing together my arts and midwifery background for a commissioned project for East Street Arts, activities ran on an ongoing basis throughout autumn 2015 and spring 2016. 

NativityHub has it's own blog here for further information and details of the project.

Update August 2014.

In 2011 I embarked on a BSc in Midwifery Studies. I complete this year and have accepted a position with the Yorkshire Storks, a collective of Independent Midwives. I'm very excited about this, and aim to continue to research, make work and write about all things birth related while I begin to practice my new art of midwifery later this year!! See   for info. 

Lilla's Birthing and the accompanying artist's book Portrait of a Labour will be exhibited in the HOME FROM HOME exhibition, part of Leeds International Artists Book Fair in March 2011
