Nyssa's Mia Clarke speaks to design thought leaders and historians Michelle Fisher and Amber Winick about the designs that have profoundly shaped the motherhood experience.
Michelle and Amber are collaborating on an incredible book and exhibition, launched earlier this year, Designing Motherhood*, which features more than eighty designs—iconic, archaic, quotidian, and taboo—that have defined arc of human reproduction.
In this episode, Michelle and Amber discuss some of those defining designs, from the creation of the first at-home pregnancy test (invented by a woman, Margaret Crane), to the Finnish Baby Box to clear screens for c-sections births and much more.
