Passage is Mila Oshin’s new poetry collection, out now as a beautiful limited edition poetry collection with a music album CD insert, or as a music album download.

Passage marks Oshin’s inner journey following her first birth, its physical and emotional repercussions, her subsequent experience of new parenthood and, eventually, her remarkable second birth which happened at home before the arrival of a midwife.

Passage as a music album was written, performed and produced by Mila Oshin in collaboration with her long-term artistic partner and the father of her children, Kris Jager, with whom she has worked as artist duo Drunk With Joy for over ten years.

“I am moved by the sustained anguish yet calm contained in these poems.”
Dr Andrea Liss, author ‘Feminist Art and the Maternal’, USA
