Lockdown Baby: Pregnant in the pandemic

Lockdown Baby documents the stories of three women who became pregnant during the first lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic. These professional performing artists and mothers-to-be take their art forms from the stage to the city streets to share their intimate expressions of love, fear, and hope for their unborn babies.  

"I apologise 
for this world that no matter what 
I can’t despise
Because even in the terrifying lockdown 
life brought you to me
Showing once again its beauty…”

- Excerpt from MAYA by Nicole Jordan
