#MaternityArt – We need your help to bring smiles to the faces of our NHS maternity heroes

Let’s be honest, things have been pretty hard recently as we’ve all made sacrifices that have had a big impact on our lives. Here at Baby Lifeline we wanted to do something that would help bring a smile to people’s faces and remind us that more positive times are ahead. 

…So, we’ve come up with a fun idea that we hope everyone will get involved in!


We would love for all parents and children to take a little bit of time to draw or paint a picture showing something they look forward to doing once the lockdown is officially over. Whether it’s a picnic in the park, a visit to grandparents, spending time with friends, a trip to the Zoo, bowling, going on holiday or something more adventurous – we want to know!

We’ll share the artwork with local maternity services to brighten up their walls and bring a smile to the faces of those caring for new and expectant mums. So if you enter, there is a chance your art work will be displayed on the walls of your local maternity unit alongside the art work of Dame Judi Dench and Bob Moran!

Prizes Up For Grabs

To make it more fun, we’ve got some fantastic prizes up for grabs – but don’t worry, you don’t have to be a talented artist to enter – it isn’t a competition to be the ‘best’ –  it’s about sharing imagination and thinking about happy times ahead!

All entries will be entered into a prize draw, and we’ll let you know if you’re a lucky winner!
