Nyssa's Mia Clarke speaks to design thought leaders and historians Michelle Fisher and Amber Winick. They are collaborating on an incredible book and exhibition launching later 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 the designs that have profoundly shaped the motherhood experience, 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.

You can read more about the Designing Motherhood project here and check out the excellent accompanying Instagram here.
