So I’m making a YES MUMMA mini book of empowerment and would love to know what the most inspiring, supportive and empowering things that have been said to you or you’ve said to someone about breastfeeding, especially in those early days!
It would be great to use some of these in the book, named or anonymous. I have some beautiful quotes already but would be lovely to hear what made others feel good too.
Feel free to share this post on groups or with friends 🧡...
So months after starting this project and having had 100s of cards collected I’ve finally given out my first card to a mumma!! All the groups, clinics, soft play, zoo, farm and aquarium trips I’ve had with my two boys recently and I’ve not seen a soul breastfeeding in public until today before Swimming. After I went over realised she was my GP and fellow pregnancy yoga goer with her new bubba! Feels good to be getting the positive vibes out there✌🏽
This little project was prompted by a lovely stranger who thanked me for feeding my baby boy in public recently and gave me a chocolate bar and a drink. In over 2 years of feeding my eldest son and now my youngest this hadn’t happened to me before and made me feel awesome but also on the flip side because a friend was verbally and physically abused for breastfeeding in public too. Two polar opposite experiences, both in Southsea.
So I wanted to do something nice so I started... a little project called #YesMumma. I’ve designed and printed these as a way of sharing some love and support for breastfeeding mums. Small cards to thank people for breastfeeding in public isn’t a new idea but I know but all I want to do when I see someone breastfeeding in public is shout ‘YES MUMMA’ *ready to high five* so this is a little something to tell someone they’re absolutely bossing it a bit more subtly.
