A 28-year-old mother, Chelsea Craig, has taken the internet by storm with a photoshoot of her breastfeeding her two small daughters – Addy and Emilynn.
The photos were taken by professional maternity photographer, Mae Burke.
People quoted Craig as saying:
“I look at the expressions on my girls’ faces and my expressions towards them, and it’s a feeling that I get.
“[Mae] put feelings into images. I told her, ‘I want you to get us living life, and what it feels like for me to be their mother.’ When I saw the pictures, it was just that.”
Of public breasfeeding, she said:
“I’m very confident in the decision that this is what’s right for us. I consider myself a supporter of women’s rights and the choices that we make as moms. For some, that’s breastfeeding until the kid is 7, for some that’s breastfeeding until the kid is 2 weeks, for some it’s not breastfeeding at all, and that’s okay with me.”
