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. Our cartoon series visualizes these relatable situations in a hilarious way.


Show Full Text

We, illustrator Ingebritt ter Veld and I, Corinne de Vries, had babies shortly after one another. Our 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” we want to depict the reality of motherhood - with all the (sometimes literally) painful, funny and loving moments.

This is so true: After my son was born, my fashion sense went out the window. In the beginning, I actually forgot about myself and concentrated solely my son. Hair, nails, wearing my stylish clothes wasn't even a concern of mine. But when he was a year or so and I was getting myself back, I began to treat myself (get my hair, nails and toes done), so I can look like a nice, sexy mom.

So TRUE! This was when I stopped breastfeeding. When my son tried to take a chunk out of my nipple. He was a little over 1 year old.
