Daily Information

after birth grew out of collaboration  between playwright Zena Forster and researchers at the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit  (NPEU), Oxford University.

At the centre of my play is Ann – razor-witted and indomitable – her character is rooted in the  funny, resilient women who  fearlessly shared their recovery  

stories with me“
