2016 Pledge to #NormalizeBfing
June 27th, 2016 is International Day to Normalize Breastfeeding! This special day has officially been proclaimed by the mayors of the following cities: San Diego, Austin, Philadelphia, Charlotte, and Fort Myers!

In 2015 close to 5,000 people took the pledge: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/7688902

EVENT THEME
The 2016 pledge theme for International Day to Normalize Breastfeeding is #NursePumpDonate. The intention of the worldwide online event this year is to encourage mothers to give the gift of breast milk to their baby longer, using one or a combination of all three methods of delivery. Understandably, not every mother can breastfeed and not every mother has breast milk. However, even more mothers are unaware of the benefits of using donated breast milk. This is breast milk feeding, and the benefits are endless. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends breastfeeding as an optimal source of infant nutrition for a minimum of 2 years and the International WHO Code for Marketing Breastmilk Substitutes is simple guide to support this recommendation and protect new families to do just that.

PURPOSE
Why 6/27/15? This day will mark the 2 year anniversary of the launch of this project and the beginning of my journey as a professional Breastfeeding Portrait Photographer, only 4 years into my professional photography career. My dream is to go on an international photo tour to connect our #NBFmamas to lactation peer support within their local communities and collaborate worldwide with local businesses document breastfeeding families.
