A new baby and a new mother, both finding their way in their new world, together. On mum's chest, on her skin, on her heart, is exactly where her baby belongs during these first weeks, the fourth trimester (and beyond). Mom is magic; her heartbeat, breathing, warmth, all helping her baby to calm, regulate and grow. Her previously round and full belly where her baby matured now provides a soft warm cushion for the little legs, as they slowly unfurl and grow long, mama's instincts providing everything her baby needs and wants. Mama is her baby's whole universe for now: sun and moon, providing nourishment, sanctuary and warmth.
Flourishing, Newborn Motherhood Art
A print of my original drawing, featuring a new baby sleeping on their mother's chest, both content in this quiet moment as they let nature, their bodies and natural instincts guide them through this new often overwhelming stage.
I started these Zentangle drawings as late night doodles during a few trying weeks with young son. I wanted to remind myself of the parts of parenting I love, to represent the beauty and strength of motherhood that we sometimes forget when we are exhausted, doubting ourselves or giving too much thought to outsiders' opinions.
This is a printed copy of my original artwork which was hand drawn in pen. The design is printed locally here in Galway, Ireland on 350gm Ivorex board. Each print is individually signed and year dated.
Prints are sold without frames or mounts, but wrapped to keep them safe.
Your print will be wrapped in white tissue paper and sealed, or placed in a 100% biodegradable cellophane sleeve, which is made from corn starch and is brown bin compostable. It will be posted in a sturdy hard backed protective envelope.
Designs may be personalised with names, dates and initials on request, additional cost depends on the number of personalisations required.
