Cheyanne Booker, a mother and photographer from Alabama, had a tough time breastfeeding her now 13 month old daughter; so she created a photo series of different mums that went through the same problems.
Booker shared the photo series on Facebook, and features different stories of moms who struggled with breastfeeding right after giving birth.
“This is to help encourage other mothers who also breastfeed or want to breastfeed their babies,” she said on Facebook. “They all told me their stories of their personal struggles with breastfeeding and their determination to make it work (even if they had to use donor milk). This isn’t to put down mothers who formula feed, but to encourage all women who choose to breastfeed that might feel like they are alone in their journey.”
