‘Pregnancy is such a time of change – in many ways a woman also gives birth to herself. As an artist, a woman and a mother, it is interesting to me to explore the kinds of processes that women experience and uncover the different ways that women resource themselves, to meet the challenges at this important moment.’ – Niamh O’Connor
