It's been one month since Art and Matilda Green welcomed their first child, Milo Kenneth Green, into the world!

New mum Matilda took to Instagram to share how the first four weeks of parenthood have been for her, noting that it has been both challenging and amazing.

Alongside an adorable photo of her baby boy, Matilda wrote: "Four weeks today with our little guy.

"It certainly hasn't been without its challenges, but when he's sleeping on my chest making his little squeaky noises, there is actually nothing better in this world! I love you, Milo!"

Milo was born last month during an "incredible" homebirth in the living room of the married couple's Warkworth home - and he was even delivered by Art.

At the time Matilda described the moment as "the most incredible experience of my entire life".

"The most incredible experience of my entire life. We're all loving settling in to our new family of 5 (cats included obviously).

"I promise he does open his eyes sometimes, though not that often currently," she wrote on Instagram.

Art also took to social media to share the exciting news.

"My beautiful wife, and son Milo Green," he captioned the post.

"On Wednesday evening during a power cut Matty gave birth naturally in our lounge. She was incredible, using breathing techniques to remain calm and strong throughout. I even got to deliver the little guy. Tell ya what, they are slippery little octopuses when they come out. Everyone is happy and healthy and filled with love."

In April, the duo announced they are "so bloody excited" to be expecting a boy.

While they've kept potential names to themselves, Art told Woman's Day their kids will be "free-range babies".

"We really want our kids to grow up surrounded by nature and, as a family, living off the land as best we can."

The Greens were married on Waiheke Island in February in a small ceremony where Matilda also took the opportunity to announce her pregnancy to family and friends.
