Becoming a mother is the greatest joy that any woman can get but for enjoying this moment, a woman has to go through a lot, from carrying a life in her womb for nine months to bear severe pain while giving birth to the child. During these nine months, a woman’s body experiences many changes, her mood swings a lot, she has to take medicines and in some cases, she may be asked by her doctor to quit eating her favorite food items because it may not be suitable for a pregnant mother and her baby.

However, things are not easy even after she becomes a mother and she has to learn a lot while bringing up her child.

We are paying a tribute to the motherhood with 20 photos showing the problems faced by a mother but presented in a comic style:

After that, the mother has to wait for a little so that the kid goes deep into sleep and she can put him on the bed but till then she is not in a position to move or hold on to something because she fears of the kid getting awake.
