Photographer and mother of two Ivette Ivens set out to capture mothers breastfeeding in nature as a reminder of this totally natural phenomenon.
She told The Huffington Post: “I want people to look at it as if it was a cat nursing her baby kittens. Or any other mammal, if you’re not a cat person,” she said, adding, “Forget the covering up, nursing in a public bathroom, age restrictions. It’s between a mother and her child.”
“I believe that mothers should nurse their little ones whenever they want to,” Ivens said.
Ivens’ photo book titled Breastfeeding Goddesses will be available for pre-order on 3 May 2015 to coincide with her “I breastfeed my toddler” art show in Chicago.
