Mum’s not the word shares stories of birth control, choice, freedom, regret and pain. Could civilisation be guided to acknowledge that it is acceptable to opt out of parenthood and, by so doing, allow humankind to inherit the key to a sustainable future?

A groundbreaking photobook about women without children. The nude images challenge the negative attitudes within society towards women who are not mothers, and the text shares their stories of birth and death, choice, freedom, pain ... and regret.

50 colour images show real nude women in the foetal position: they come from all walks of life – professionals, artists: a few have mental health issues or disabilities; some have fragile relationships with their birth mother; a couple identify as other than heterosexual.

Mum’s not the word debates the social stigmatisation of women, who, by choice, circumstance or, for whatever reason, go against the instinct for childbirth and maternal productivity.
