Funny cartoons about pregnancy

No one ever said it would be easy: during pregnancy and motherhood, joy is sometimes clouded by problems big and small, fatigue and unfavorable circumstances. In these situations - as always, after all - it is better to laugh than cry! This seems to be the philosophy behind the illustrations by Meghan Shah, young American mom who had the idea to summarize her life in pregnancy and later through funny comics.





The protagonist of the drawings is a funny character of her own invention "Mommie Poppins”: a sarcastic and irreverent mother, who tells with irony the various phases and typical situations of motherhood. The author has published her drawings on a Facebook page and her aim is to give parents a smile in the most frustrating moments.

Because motherhood is not everything 'Merry Poppins' e a good sense of humor is the only way to get away with it. This is alcohol.

Probably many mothers will recognize themselves in these drawings!

  • At least once in nine months, take the satisfaction ...

To pee or not to pee, that is NOT the question. Pee.

  • Some small satisfaction

I admit it, I put a hand on my stomach and made a face to make me give up my seat on the subway

  • The joys of pregnancy

Nausea, bloating, flatulence, peeing every 2 minutes, pelvic pain, insomnia, pimples, fatigue, mustache, bleeding gums, back pain… yes, how cool to be pregnant!

  • Fat or pregnant ?!

I'm in that stage of pregnancy where people don't know whether to compliment me or give me a gym membership.

  • Finding your way in the theories jungle can be difficult, but not for everyone.

My parenting philosophy is to do the exact opposite of what my mother-in-law says.

It takes years of meditation to reach a mother's level of concentration while cutting her baby's nails!
