Project - First Birth Mini-Album

For a long time I have been struggling to find a way to tell the story of my grandmother's first pregnancy. It is a tragic story. My grandfather was away at war when my grandmother went into labor. The women in the plantation hospital who had received C-sections were dying, so the doctor refused to perform one on my grandmother. After a very long labor, she finally gave birth, but she lost her child. Years later, when I was pregnant with my daughter, my grandmother's story haunted me, and when I saw my grandmother hold my daughter for the first time, it was overwhelming. I created this mini-album to document both of our stories.
All materials are from the June JBS Mercantile kits.
