A Westbrook College nursing student passes a newborn infant to its mother in this early 1970s black and white photograph with the phrase "Taken at Maine Med. Center" typed on the back of the photo. The nursing student is wearing a very plain, white surgical gown and white unbanded cap. She holds the newborn wrapped in a blanket or sheet. The infant's mother is reaching out, preparing to lift her baby from the student's arms. The nursing student's joy and youthful beauty have been captured by the photographer.
