Pregnancy And Giving Birth In Wholesome, Honest Illustration By American Artist (33 Pics)

It’s true to say that there’s nothing in life more beautiful than love. Love is the only thing that makes us feel alive, but at the same time, it’s hard to find a person who truly loves you. Learning to accept your flaws and supporting you all the time, helping you to grow and become better – it’s never easy to find a person like that. Some people even say you only feel true love when your baby comes. Your child will make you realize how much you are in love.

That’s why Amanda Oleander, a famous American artist with more than 2M followers, comes up with an idea to illustrate her maternity journey on Instagram. The journey started in 2020 when Amanda and her husband weren’t happier to receive the pregnancy result from doctors. Amanda’s journey still continues today after her child was born. If you are a mother or a parent of young kids, this is a post you shouldn’t skip. Watching the following pictures and you’ll see they are totally relatable!
