Holy-Art TIFFOpen+


Singleton pregnancy, alive. Embryo, fetus, threatened miscarriage. Bean, small butterfly with tickling wings, baby, human. Your heart beats so hard that I felt it in my throbbing temples. You dug at night when I fought for every minute of sleep. Then a fight for your first breath and cry. You were no longer part of me. You were yourself. You are yourself.

Urszula Śleszyńska 


“Prologue” is a story of fear, hope and family. About the crisis experience of pregnancy and parenthood. About how an Inability to communicate can lead two people away from each other. It is a story about how to be together when the common goal is to bear, give birth and raise a child.
This is the story of victory.
