In this first installment of photo series "Birth Undisturbed", the walls of a living room have seemingly become transparent allowing us into the private space of a primal woman birthing in her home environment. The glass cube is a visual metaphor of the "salle sauvage" (primitive room), a term used by renowned obstretician Michel Odent in reference to the rooms in his hospital in Pithiviers, France, designed to accommodate the instincts of labouring women.

Birth Undisturbed is a fine-art photography series by Natalie Lennard depicting childbirth through the world and history to enlighten, inspire and inform. From ancient to modern, and squalid to famous, the series uses fictional narrative photography to depict birth at its most primally powerful, highlighting key figureheads and writers in birth philosophy and telling stories of women both real and imagined. With a global maternity and birth crisis, its timeliness is ever more appropriate in its ambition to rebalance the power dynamic in birth.

“The bearing of children ought to become as free from danger and long debility to civilised woman as it is to the savage” — Thomas Huxley
