I first came to Mothers Who Make whilst pregnant, as a mother to be; I met a grandmother who was a visual artist, a new mum who was a filmmaker, a mother who was an actor and her son had just left home. It was a great way to meet and collaborate with other mothers from different creative backgrounds. It made me feel visible at a time when I felt at threat from disappearing from my creative network during my maternity. It was also instrumental in my rethinking my approach to working alongside a young family. I take my daughter to meetings with me sometimes, breastfed in the rehearsal room, schedule work during her naps and I work late at night with the owls so I have more time with her in the day. My work as a producer on this project has encouraged me to be more visible in my dual roles, as I am always both.
