It is no wonder that for many mothers, there are too many barriers.“ Following her own incident at the museum, Ms Joyce added that the reason it was “important” was because “embarrassment about breastfeeding [is] still one of the most common reasons that women give up”.Candice Swanepoel has shared an intimate photo of her breast-feeding her son, Anaca, and slammed critics for shaming her and other moms for feeding in public.After the surgery, I did not get to hold my son for hours.I was in too much pain and it took a while for the anesthesia and pain medication to wear off.She said: “If people really want an eyeful of boob there are plenty to choose from, mostly far more exquisite than mine and unimpeded by a writhing toddler.” Museum director and former Labour MP Tristram Hunt apologised on the social media site, posting: “[Very] sorry.Our policy is clear: women may breast-feed wherever they like, wherever they feel comfortable and should not be disturbed.” Earlier this week, the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health issued recommendations that the importance of breastfeeding is taught to children from school age to widen understanding.Professor Neena Modi, president of the Royal College, said at the time: “Regrettably the attitudes of a large part of society mean breastfeeding is not always encouraged; local support is patchy, advice is not always consistent and often overly dogmatic, support in the workplace not always conducive to continued breastfeeding.”And perhaps, most worryingly, breastfeeding in public is still often stigmatised.
Some argue this is a result of societal attitudes, whereby breastfeeding in public is still taboo.
After being in labor for almost 24 hours, I had to have an emergency c-section.
I was not mentally prepared to have a major surgery right then and there.
-Breastfeeding is not sexual it's natural- Those who feel it is wrong to feed your child in public need to get educated on the benefits breastfeeding has on mother and child and intern on society as a whole.
No one ever told me how hard it would be to breastfeed.
