#UHBristolArts Second Wednesday - This Girl Can Move

Enjoy an evening of lively conversation about how to stay well during pregnancy and after birth.

Be the first to see an exhibition of portrait photographs created in partnership with Bristol's This Girl Can 'Fit Got Real' campaign for the Midwife Led Unit and hear how a photographer, a stand up comedy performer, and a sports event producer have found their own ways of navigating the roller coaster of early motherhood.

During March, MOVING is the theme for #UHBristolArts Arts, the Arts and Culture Programme at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. Throughout the month we will look at both moving and being moved, and explore how emotions are affected by how we exercise our bodies and our minds.
