I always knew I was going to breastfeed and I always knew that I wanted my children to be the one to decide when our journey would end but I don't think I anticipated that I would still on the odd occasion be nursing my daughter at age 5.
As someone who has felt quite alone in nursing an "older" child I decided to reach out to other mamas who were also nursing beyond infancy and to those who were allowing their children to decide when to stop.
And so my project Milk was born.
Through this project I have connected with so many inspiring and incredible mothers who through sharing their stories with me have empowered me in ways I hadn't anticipated. At the beginning of this project I felt worried about putting myself out there but now I feel proud of our journey. It is my hope that it can help others on a similar path in the same way.
I feel it is important to honour and celebrate our journeys truthfully. By sharing our stories through words and images we empower ourselves and others. Natural Term Breastfeeding is something I am incredibly passionate about and wish to help normalise through my work.
As time moves forward, I will be adding other articles to this space as well.
(If you are nursing and your little one is 4 or older and you are able to come to the New Forest, UK, please do get in touch, I would Love for you to be a part of it)
