NOT BY ACCIDENT

An audio documentary series about becoming a single mother by choice, not by accident.  I’ve been using my audio recorder like a sketchbook or a camera for the past five years, capturing important moments and conversations on my path to single parenthood.  I recorded my deliberations as I made my decision to have a baby on my own, and as I took action: telling family, friends and work, choosing a donor, insemination… I kept recording when it was more about reaction!  Pregnancy, morning sickness, midwives, labor pains, birth, breastfeeding, sleep deprivation, ear infections, routine, chaos, travel, work, childcare, searching for a new equilibrium.  This is a story about how life happens and we can’t always control the circumstances or events, we just have to accept things as they are.  This series is a record for my child, and for people like her.  It’s for anyone struggling with the momentous decision, some way along the journey of living as a fully-fledged ‘single mother by choice’ or ‘choice mom; like me.  It’s for those trying to understand decisions and actions being taken by someone they love.  It’s for all the wonderful unconventional families who make the world a much more interesting place and for all the wonderful people who support and accept us.
