First Pregnancy (Anonymous)

May 3, 2008

I’ve been lucky the first time around. My first pregnancy went very well with little difficulty. The delivery was hard work, but I was able to do it unmedicated, and gave birth to a beautiful 5lb. 12oz. 19″ baby girl: Ruth. She’s named after my grandmother, a beautiful and dedicated woman, who taught me the value of using your mind, being skilled, remembering family, and giving generously. I hope that baby Ruth will be able to stand against the current of image-obsessed culture, and, like her grandmother, help to foster in others a sense of beauty and contentment.

(If you would like to see more of this poster’s work, check out her photography website here.)
