Births, Deaths and Marriages: Births
Comedian George McEncroe gets serious about the milestones of birth, marriage and death – and how they can transform us – with the help of guests who share their personal and professional experiences. Joining us for Births are Kaz Cooke, Monica Dux and Jane Fisher.
They explore the behavioural pressures and expectations that are often placed on pregnant women and mothers; the gaps in support for those who suffer complications to do with childbirth; and refute the common assumption that child-rearing is somehow intuitive. And they discuss why women’s work is rarely considered legitimate work at all.
