The call of Rachel McAdams to normalize breastfeeding

馃巹 Special Christmas article and end of year 2018. 馃巹

That there is still a discussion about whether or not to breastfeed in public spaces is considered morally correct, only speaks of the path that still needs to be traveled to normalize this characteristic that precisely humanizes us. Breastfeeding, understood as a way of feeding directly from the breast to provide vitamins to the baby, and is important for its development. Hence, this conversation is still controversial as it reveals a society that prefers to censure mothers when they decide to feed their child anywhere, instead of directly correcting masculine behavior and ideals they find morbid in breastfeeding (since involves breasts).

And it is just Rachel McAdams who after giving birth a few months ago and learn about the debate that arose from the appearance of model Mara Martin on the catwalk, fed her son in the middle of the show, McAdams needed to go frontally to the pubic to convey a message of great weight. In the company of photographer Claire Rothstein for the cover of Girls Girls Girls, the actress wore a small jacket signed by Versace and a Bulgari necklace, red lips and a totally unusual (and unexpected) accessory: a breast pump. Representing in this way her position as a mother and professional, given the need to give mothers a real support for the upbringing of their children because in the end the actress represents the reality of contemporary women, who are professionals and moms at the same time.

A million reasons why I wanted to post this picture. Obviously #rachelmcadams looks incredible and was quite literally the dream to work with but also this shoot was about 6 months post her giving birth to her son, so between shots she was expressing/pumping as still breastfeeding. We had a mutual appreciation disagreement about whose idea it was to take this picture but I鈥檓 still sure it was hers which makes me love her even more. Breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world and I can鈥檛 for the life of me imagine why or how it is ever frowned upon or scared of. I don鈥檛 even think it needs explaining but just wanted to put this out there, as if it even changes one person鈥檚 perception of something so natural, so normal, so amazing then that鈥檚 great. Besides she鈥檚 wearing Versace and @bulgariofficial diamonds and is just fucking major. Big shout out to all the girls 馃挭馃徑 #rachelmcadams for @girls.girls.girls.magazine .com cover shoot 馃摳 @clairerothstein #pleaseshare . . . Side note: I did not look anywhere near as fabulous as this when feeding/pumping. And that鈥檚 ok too. . . .
