Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

Personal Images of Infertility by Monica Wiesblott August 26, 2010

This image is part of the collection in Monica Wiesblotts’ new exhibit “Barren: Life on Infertile Soil.” Monica is a photographer whose work “examines the quiet reflections of a life without children, in a child-centric world and what it means to navigate daily in those constraints”. She says:

“The inspiration for the show was not only the discovery of my own infertility, but the silence surrounding it. The longstanding stigma of shame has made us a silent tribe of women.”


If you find yourself in Southern California this fall, make your way to Ventura to see Monica’s show.

    Hi. I am running an art competition in Ottawa Canada called Expressions of Infertility. The purpose of the event is to give expression to the experience of infertility through art and to generate greater awareness and understanding in the general public. While the event ends on October 1, I wonder if this may be of interest to you.

    Please feel free to contact me or visit the blog at to find out more.
