PASSAGE is a beautiful, limited edition poetry publication (including a CD album insert of the music album by Drunk With Joy), written by Mila Oshin in response to her two extremely opposed birth and new parenthood experiences.
Raw, intimate and at times brutally honest, the works mark their author’s inner journey as she dealt with her first birth and its long-term physical repercussions, her experience of new parenthood and, eventually, her remarkable second birth which took place at home without a midwife present.
This limited edition publication includes a CD album insert featuring musical renditions of ten of the poems, written and performed by Mila Oshin and her husband and long-term creative partner Kris Jager, with whom she works as artist duo Drunk With Joy.
All profits from PASSAGE will go towards the development of www.projectafterbirth.com
