Within feminist scholarship there is a growing body of literature on pregnant and particularly maternal subjectivity. However, there has been very little published about women’s birth stories and their birthing subjectivities from an embodied perspective. This thesis attempts to respond to this gap. Using a practice-as-research methodology that combines modes of writing and speaking the body (l’écriture feminine) and deep listening, I attempt to design platforms (performative and written) that enable me to write (and re-write) my birth stories in the feminist tradition of autobiographical performance.
