Mum Perfectly Captures Challenges of Pregnancy with Humour

  • Parents Only

In 2012 Line Severinsen was pregnant with her first baby, and was experiencing the woes and joys of the experience. Wanting to share her experiences she picked up a pen and set out to illustrate her journey and shared it online. She perfectly captures the changes and challenges of pregnancy with humour and humility through her delightful comics which have attracted a global and sympathetic audience.

“I thought to myself that there is no way that no other people felt and looked like I did,” she told The Huffington Post. “So I wanted to create a counterpoint to help people like me to understand that they weren’t alone and that it is OK to feel and act less than perfect sometimes.”

Now, she’s had her second child and has cleverly illustrated the chaos of raising a kid. You can see her comics on Facebook at Kos Og Kaos and Instagram @kosogkaos.
