Here, the mother’s confused face is similar to that of the clown in<em><a href="http://magart.rochester.edu/Obj28392"> Rape Serenade</a></em>. Schaechter recalls a book about female serial killers—often caretakers like nurses or mothers—published during this period. In the case of new mothers, hormonal imbalances can be unpredictable and catastrophic; postpartum depression is a heartbreaking condition that many women suffer without support or understanding. Additionally, this piece was completed a year after a woman’s right to control her reproductive future was litigated in the 1992 Supreme Court case Planned Parenthood v. Casey. As is often true, Schaechter’s work conflates and reinterprets multiple cultural sources.
