At one point in the forming of this piece there existed only a pregnant nude with a skeleton skull . . . life and death. It is a fine line too often walked in the practice of OB-GYN. I have spent hundreds of hours with despondent, frustrated, angry, frightened, often abandoned young black women, waiting with them as they waited on the one thing in their lives they felt they could call their own; the one thing they perceive as a personal triumph. Whether the idea is legitimate or not, if I didn’t try to understand the emotion, the apparent chaotic nature of their lives would drive me mad. This small piece strikes close to my heart.
