UHCW, Coventry

On permanent display at UHCW are seven mother portraits form the Holding Time series taken during the project which ran 2020-2021 to coincide with Coventry City of Culture 2021. These works feature Coventry and Warwickshire mothers who gave birth at the hospital feeding their infants. All of the mothers featured also have been interviewed about their personal breastfeeding experiences and these insights can be found via links to the project Youtube channel.

An interview with Professor Debra Bick, head of Warwick University’s Maternity Themed Clinical Trials Unit reminds us of the need for policy change in the area of breastfeeding across the UK.
