Woman with a Baby - Femme au bebé - la Femo a l'enfant
The Woman with a Baby, a wet nurse, comes to the Manger with a blanket and to offer to nurse the Christ Child so that Mary may get some much-needed rest. Mary has not only just given birth, she has travelled long with Joseph to arrive in Bethlehem.
It is normal for the Woman with a Baby to be paired with the Woman with a Cradle in the Provençal crib.
