New York Artist to Give Birth Before a Live Audience
The New York Post reports that Kotak, who is due in five weeks, plans to have her baby at the Microscope Gallery as part of a larger art piece on childbirth, called “The Birth of Baby X.” Other parts of the exhibit include videos of audience members at a summer festival, projected onto her pregnant belly.
Kotak says she is prepared for what lies ahead.
“I wouldn’t say that I am scared to do this, because I have a good support team: my midwife, doula and wonderful husband,” Kotak told the Post. “Of course, I am a bit nervous about the whole process of giving birth and having a child, and like every mother, I am hoping that everything goes smoothly. But I am no more worried than I would be if I were having the baby at home or in a hospital.”
