"When I started out on my journey to , I was incredibly focused on what motherhood would look like for my daughter and her generation. I wondered what would happen if no one took a dedicated stand for this cause. How far and how long would we go before mothers were given a voice to speak out against shame and discrimination? Especially about an issue that is the only natural form of sustenance and comfort we can offer our young.

I leapt into a valley of the unknown and took on a beast that I had no idea was a big or as gnarly as the political beast that governs the way we feed our babies. I found peace in discovering that the way we were created to feed was the ultimate comfort for our babies, yet I also found rage in the fact that the system was basically setting mothers up to fail.

It's taken six whole years for me to realize that my voice was so much stronger than any image I could ever capture. My experiences needed to be shared more than I needed to stand behind any lens. When I was on tour, more people were excited about what I had shared with them during my talk, versus raving over the photos I had captured. And not just my experiences of breastfeeding, but my experiences of talking to many women about the struggles that they faced in their lives too.

Being in this world of infant feeding, has taught me that if you really want to support parents you need to understand how to best help them and in order to know how to best help them you need to realize what motivates them to do what's necessary to achieve their feeding goals.

Breastfeeding is hard.

Breastfeeding can take months to learn how to do it right.

Breastfeeding requires focus and a positive mindset.

Breastfeeding is also our life force in postpartum.

Breastfeeding guarantees a full supply of oxytocin everyday.

Breastfeeding can also look different for everyone!

Breastfeeding can actually be pumping exclusively, bottle-feeding donor milk, and chestfeeding!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, "No matter how we feed our babies, support is best for us!"

What has motivated you to keep going? Lmk"

✨ Working mom 📷by me () ✨

La première chose qu'on me disait lorsque j'annonçais ma grossesse c'était : « Mais qu'est-ce que tu vas faire du coup ? »

Qu'est-ce que j'ai fait ?
Bah déjà j'ai porté mon fils 8 mois et demi.

J'ai eu mon diplôme de médiation scientifique mention très bien, j'ai fait un service civique en chargée de projet, j'ai enchaîné avec un stage en chargée de communication scientifique, j'ai exposé dans une expo collective, j'ai participé au tournage du générique d'une web série et d'un épisode de celle-ci, j'ai shooté plusieurs concerts, j'ai monté des dossiers de financements pour des projets,j'ai construit mon projet grossesse mise à nue et puis j'ai surtout mis au monde un être humain!

Oui tomber enceinte à 21ans en pleine année scolaire et en pleine pandémie mondiale c'est pas une situation toute >.
Mais aujourd'hui je suis maman à 22ans diplômée, ayant des expériences pro et une multitude de projets à mon acquis.

Bien sûr rien a été simple et tout sera plus compliqué à l'avenir.
Mais devenir maman ce n'est pas spécifiquement stopper sa vie (même en ayant eu 3 hospitalisations durant la grossesse et en allaitant à la demande).

🌈 Co-nursing (or wet nursing) is an age old practice wherein someone other than the gestational parent nurses baby. Today co-nursing is most often seen in same-sex families

⚠️ CAUTION should be taken as human milk, like blood, can pass infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis B to baby

👩🏽‍⚕️ speak with a lactation consultant if you're considering co-nursing

It's 8 p.m. and the babies are asleep and this is her hour.

Do you know it?

The time for a half-hour show.

The conversation with a partner.

A shower.

The phone scroll.

This is her hour to be - in quiet, alone.

But it's not really hers.

Do you know it?

The last pump of the day.

The stir on the baby monitor.

The thoughts of tomorrow - a bottle to be made, a high chair to be cleaned (now or in the morning?).

This is her hour and the chaos and the picking up and the diaper changes wrap in her mind (making memories) as the relief, and the silence sets in, sitting there on the couch with the missing them and the enjoying this (the way moms know it to always be).

This is her hour before her eyes feel heavy and she knows she has to sleep.

This is her hour and it's not really hers.

Words + picture:

Leave a 💛 in the comments if you can relate.

"It's Monday, and your girl is cooked. But I got three meals in compared to my usual one. I drank lots of water, and got some work done. The boogie kids are alive and fed, I heard them laugh a lot and they both took a nap.

I guess I survived, we kept two humans alive today and that sounds like success to me! Ha!

If your Monday was a sh*t show.... If the tiny humans survived, you did more than enough.

Here's to focusing on what was done and not what you failed at doing today!

Tell me something you accomplished today?"

Has anyone heard this myth before?

🥛 drinking milk does not = making milk

Every body requires different nutrients. Focus on staying hydrated and eating what makes your body feel good✌🏼
