This is an oil pastel painting, not qutite complete according to the meticulous artist who will be referred to as "BH." This art symbolizes so many things in a very unique way. Birth, an unborn child, the beauty of bringing new life into this world (even though this world SUCKS right now) - the sunflower demonstrates the beauty. The umbilical cord purposefully going to the baby, symbolic of of fetal development.

"BH" is my partner. In 2019 I became pregnant. Unfortunately, a termination was necessary. There were in utero issues with large blood clots which would eventually kill or greatly harm the child. Therefore, we decided on a termination. Post termination depression is hard especially if you already had underlying depression, cPTSD, and severe anxiety.

We were both sad about Jacob's passing. That was our babies' name. I am certain he's in a better place. RIP Jacob. BH did a really great job in a somewhat abstract way of depicting Jacob.

Any thoughts? Anyone else had to go through a termination?
