’Birth Undisturbed' is an award-winning fictional narrative series by British photographer Natalie Lennard. Travelling through the world and history to depict birth from ancient to modern, and squalid to famous, the series depicts stories of woman both real and imagined. Using images and video to examine current Western birth ideology, the artist strives to speak a new language by bringing key figureheads and writers from the realm of birth philosophy into cinematic and compelling stories.

Birth Undisturbed has been featured in the Daily Mail, The Sun, Metro, RPS Heroines, Daily Beast and LBC Radio; and exhibited in London, Barcelona, Kuala Lumpur and Lagos Nigeria.
