This is a program featuring a series of workshops for women in pregnancy. It offers supported creative practice in a group, as a way to address connection, emotional health & wellbeing for midwives and pregnant women.
In The Baby Makers, women in pregnancy can join the group along with a midwife, and the artists facilitate the creativity of all present. The women can bring their own projects and/or we support them in making something new. The project was piloted in the Stonehouse area in Gloucestershire.
The pilot was possible thanks to funding by the Midcounties Cooperative Fund. Our report is now available (PDF) and we are actively seeking partners to continue this project. We are very grateful to midwives in the Stroud District for supporting and participating in the sessions.
