This past Monday began World Breast Feeding Week. This year we as a group chose to do a themed 50's shoot.
By the 1950s the majority of the population in the United States viewed breast feeding as disgusting, uneducated, old fashioned and was thought of as something only the poor did. Breast feeding was discouraged by medical professionals, and media of the time. Only about 25% of women breast fed their children as a result of this sigma.
If we could only rewrite breastfeeding history, imagine where we could be today.
