What's On

Miscarriage - Fertility Fest

More common than you might think, less talked about than it should be. A whole evening dedicated to bringing miscarriage out of the shadows.

Julia Bueno will be talking about her new book, The Brink of Being, published by Virago in May. 

Visual artist Foz Foster is determined to challenge the perception that miscarriage only happens to women. He will be talking about his extensive body of work Labour of Love celebrating the three children he lost. 

Theatre company Open Sky present a scene from their new show Cold. When a couple step out of a hospital waiting room they find themselves lost in a snowbound wood. Will they ever find their way back home? A story of a pregnancy that doesn’t go as planned.

After the performance, the artists will be joined on stage for a Q&A session with Ruth Bender Atik, National Director of The Miscarriage Association. Chaired by Kate Brian, Women’s Voices Lead at the Royal College of Obstreticians and Gynaecologists
