What is PBAP?
The Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project (PBAP) was founded in 2013 by Leilani Rodgers. It is a global campaign orchestrated by some of the best birth + family photographers across the globe. Each year the PBAP photographers document mothers from their respective locations breastfeeding in public. We share the images on social media throughout World Breastfeeding Month (August) along with words shared by the mothers photographed telling their personal stories. We also work with several local and international media outlets making our reach wide. We hope that our images reach mothers on their breastfeeding journey and let them know they are not alone, they are supported, and they are normal. We also hope that the images help desensitize the general public to seeing women breastfeeding in public. We aim to bring mothers in the community together. We do not subscribe to 'breast is best'. We do however push supported and respected feeding -when, how and wherever you are.
Who can participate?
ANYONE! I really want to have a wide showing of nursing moms this year. All different age ranges (both in terms of momma and baby), all different races, all different family dynamics. Tandum nursing, SNS, donor milk, pumping mommas, wet nurse - we want to empower all moms to feel confident in how they feed their babies. I would also love to include a couple of formula moms who for any reason didn't breastfeeding (be it they didn't want to breastfeed, or they couldn't).
