Photo Series Highlights the Beauty of Breastfeeding in Public

In Art, artist, People, Photography


It’s been a hotly-debated topic for many years: breast feeding in public.  Some argue that breast feeding is perfectly natural and there should be no issue with breastfeeding in public.  Others argue that it should only be done in private.

In response to the debate, photographer Ivette Ivens just released a series of highly stylized photographs of mothers breastfeeding outside to remind everyone that it’s “a totally normal thing.” The 25-year-old artist is a mother of two, and breastfed her older son until he was three.

“I nursed them both anywhere I wanted. From church to parties, from farmers market to high-end designer stores. I believe that mothers should nurse their little ones whenever they want to,” stated Ivens. She is also a proponent for extended breastfeeding, adding: “children know when it’s time to wean off. Mothers do too. Strangers don’t know, so they shouldn’t care.”
