Not By Accident is a documentary podcast series about becoming a single mother by choice.
Independent producer Sophie Harper documents the intimate details of her not-so-conventional journey to becoming a parent. As a narrator, Sophie’s tone is quiet and deeply personal. It’s as though you’re sitting on the couch together with a cup of tea, hearing her story unfold.
Through a mix of audio diaries, conversations with friends and family, and documentary style recordings – all recorded over an impressively long amount of time – Sophie describes her changing body, career, childbirth, and the enormous love that having her child has unlocked.
