This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is in some ways a dedication to the poet Hollie McNish. Essentially, when she became pregnant, she didn’t feel she was ready to be a mother, actually she felt ashamed and channelled her feelings, of parenthood, into verse. McNish’s poetry is not all about love and joy, it’s about pregnancy worries and traumas to all the concerns and pressures we feel post pregnancy too. With public breastfeeding in toilets, to trying to quieten down her baby whilst commuting to work on the train. With my own daughter now at thirteen years old, these type of issues are behind us and I am so enjoying sharing our time together, being together.
I took this mobile photograph of Bella as we spent the day at a beautiful English country estate.

“It’s sooo hard now
To transfer position
from one room to the next …
… and I wish I could just split this body in two
One chest for sex
The other to feed through.”
