Please share with me why you chose to participate.
I chose to participate because my son and I got off to a rocky start with breastfeeding. He was born 6 weeks premature and had to spend his first 9 days in the NICU, because of this we were unable to have the bonding time we each needed to promote a healthy start to our breastfeeding journey. Our first month was a struggle, but we overcame it with the support my midwife, nurses, lactation consultants, and most importantly, my loved ones. I know many women have the same story but don’t get the support they need. Lactivism projects like this can help change minds so women have more support during such an emotional and difficult time in their lives.
Why do you feel it’s important to promote a positive image of breastfeeding in society today?
To remove the stigma and old views of breastfeeding so women have the support they need.
