Hold me when I’m hurting

Hold Me When I'm Hurting-1b (Facebook)

I created this piece, Hold Me When I’m Hurting, when my niece and nephew, twins, were born. One twin was smaller than the other, and despite the fact that she was in perfect health, the hospital insisted she be placed in a humidicrib and fed formula. Social services even threatened to remove her if her parents didn’t comply. This piece protests against the harsh, impersonal practices of many hospitals surrounding birth in our society. It’s about loving our babies, and holding them close to us rather than keeping them in boxes.
