Birth Stories at #BeCurious17

As part of the University of Leeds 'Be Curious' Festival on 25th March 2017 (#BeCurious17) we're inviting members of the public to share their birth story with the Thackray Medical Museum. The Museum wants to feature the voices of Leeds residents in its 'Having a Baby' gallery and will display the resulting Yarn story on a touchscreen.


The Thackray Birth Stories project has been working with parents to tell a range of stories about childbirth. Our aim is to draw together a diverse range of birth experiences - whether it's about your own birth, when you had a baby, or when you witnessed the birth of your own child, or were there to support a friend or relative. We're collecting together experiences of parents who have experienced a whole range of births, from home births to C-sections, the happy stories and the ones that might be more difficult to tell. We're hoping a whole range of people will contribute - whatever background and country you come from.
