When I was researching the bit in the paper I wrote that included post mortem shots I was suprised by the number of ones I came across of Mother and baby. A quick reminder of how dangerous the birthing process was/is.
I was walking through a grave yard the other day (as you do,) and noticed the large number of graves (especialy Asian) that had photo's of the, resident? departed? on them. Found it interesting in relation to this thread.
