One way of normalizing physiological childbirth and feeding is using a vehicle like art. Art is a storied human tradition which serves as a record of what is important to us as a culture. The sexualization of the breast in American culture is so pervasive that very young girls start to cover their chests foreshadowing the years to come. Take a peek at these beautiful images. If we portray breastfeeding as the compassionate and physical act of nourishing an infant we can chip away at the ugliness and chastisement women face in the United States.
