It is estimated that one in three women who give birth in this country describe their experience as traumatic. Birth trauma results not only from the physical challenges that can arise from childbirth, but from verbal and physical abuse from doctors who perform procedures without informed consent. PTSD has been increasingly diagnosed in women after childbirth. Doctors and nurses are abusing their patients with words, bullying behavior, and dead baby threats that are not evidence based. For this portion of the project I gathered quotes from Improving Birth’s "Break the Silence Campaign," where women told their stories of abuse at the hands of their doctors. I sewed these words onto canvases covered with hospital gown fabric I designed. Varsity lettering, which is typically used for letterman jackets, was sewn onto the canvas to spell the phrases. This lettering was chosen to represent our nation’s history of oppressing women. Many of these phrases sound like words a rapist would say to his victim. The goal of this project is to bring awareness to the abuse women are suffering at the hands of doctors and nurses. Materials: varsity lettering and Solanacaea print (scopolamin derivative) fabric on canvas
