I will resist the tyranny of expectations are self-portraits done with texts on my reflexions during pregnancy.

I had the feeling that when a woman is about to add a new member to society, certain medical and cultural protocols are started, which are aimed at homogenising and making sure that the behaviour of the future mother is predictable and quantifiable.

You can read more about my thoughts in, On how we are meant to give birth. A text about the conflict in my case between what felt instinctively right and the social norm.
