It’s Not Because




This poem It’s Not Because was commissioned  for The Birth You In Love Project.

It’s my signature poem although I actually can’t take all the credit for this one!

It was a collaboration between Kati Edwards (that’s me!) and the award winning Manchester based spoken word artist Ben Mellor.

At first, I was worried it was too contentious, but it turns out it’s the truth!

“Because birth happens best when it’s undisturbed

When it’s dark and it’s quiet and it’s unobserved”

As a society, we are not respecting the process of birth. We are creating more problems that need to be solved.

I was grateful to have performed this poem to Ina May Gaskin herself at an International Conference in Norway: Women’s Right’s In Childbirth: Take Back Control!
