Why Did Frida Never Have Kids?

Kahlo had a number of miscarriages as well as at least three therapeutic abortions. The flying bed, which was painted during Kahlo’s visit to the United States, is about the miscarriage she had. This painting illustrates the fragility of her body, the pain she was experiencing, and draws attention to the pelvic bones and uterus.

Kahlo suffered from neurological problems, chronic pain, and other health issues, including infertility, for the rest of her life as a result of contracting polio at the age of six and being involved in a terrible streetcar accident at the age of eighteen.

Why Did Frida Kahlo Have A Unibrow?
