Embarrassing stains on your T-shirt, sniffing someone’s bum to check if he has pooped, the first sex after giving birth… as a young mum your life turns upside down. This cartoon series visualizes these relatable situations in a hilarious way.
Illustrator Ingebritt ter Veld and Corinne de Vries had babies shortly after one another. Their pregnancies and first months as moms inspired these cartoons. As a young mom you undoubtedly recognize the drawings of situations every mom goes through during pregnancy and after childbirth – but those experiences are not always talked about. With the series “#thingsonlymomsknow” Ingebritt and Corinne want to depict the reality of motherhood – with all the (sometimes literally) painful, funny and loving moments.
