Guilherme Bergamini “Contractions”




In Brazil, 85% of deliveries are cesarean and 15% normal. The reverse of what the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends.
The culture of cesarean section aiming at profit destroys the woman's desire to give birth. I was able to have the privilege of experiencing this most primitive moment of the human being, which is the act of giving birth at home.
During 30 hours of contraction, an indescribable strength and resistance of the mother, Malu was born in our room on June 29, 2015.
From June 19th to July 10th, I went to the Post Office to send a postcard to Malu, a simple and childlike dialogue to make it official and materialize that moment. In a cardboard box, the main magazines and newspapers of the 29th are kept with the postcards that will be delivered to her on June 29, 2030, at 8:35 am.
