Image Statement: The subject stands with her hands on either side of her belly in a familiar gesture; at once protective and filled with love. Her identity is obscured allowing audience members to see a version of themselves reflected in the portrait. The image itself promises joy in the prospect of a newborn, however the title alludes to the significant inequality British women of colour face during pregnancy and childbirth.
