Next week is World Breastfeeding Week and we are starting celebrations early!
There are few things more natural and beautiful than a mother breastfeeding her baby. It’s healthy for both mum and babe, it’s environmentally friendly, cost effective and convenient, and yet for some, the subject is still considered taboo. This week we’re celebrating the brave celebrity mamas breaking those taboos!

Here at Seraphine we support your right to breastfeed whenever and wherever baby decides is best. But unfortunately there are still some strange social stigmas surrounding the process, which leave some mothers reluctant to leave the house without a breastfeeding cover. But World Breastfeeding Week, which kicks off on Tuesday, provides the perfect opportunity for women around the world to unite to change the negative perceptions and break those misplaced taboos!
Watch the Video: Celebs Talk about Breastfeeding
In recent years, breastfeeding has gained a glamorous new status as more and more mums in the public eye, like the stylish celebs in the video above, open up about their experience. Some of the world’s most stylish celebrity mums including Gwen Stefani, Miranda Kerr, Gisele Bundchen, Eva Amurri Martino and Natalia Vodianova to name but a few, have taken to social media to share their own stunning breastfeeding pictures, adding their voices to the rolling wave of positive energy surrounding your right to breastfeed.
Back in 2014 Actress Olivia Wilde took the internet by storm with her stunning breastfeeding photo shoot for Glamour Magazine. The shoot was set in a retro style diner, and showed the new mum looking gorgeous in a designer dress as she proudly breastfed her baby son Otis.

The images portray Olivia as a multifaceted woman in her new role as a mother. She told Glamour: “Breastfeeding is the most natural thing…. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. [But] I mean, I certainly don’t really look like that when I’m [typically] breast-feeding. And there’s usually a diaper involved.”
The fashion industry has always loved to push the boundaries and break taboos, and with this wave of glamorous breastfeeding imagery in the media, it’s fantastic to see them leading the way towards normalising this most natural of mother child bonds.
