_Support in a mother’s immediate family is crucial to success. If one member is not on board the breastfeeding relationship becomes vulnerable. This portrait also touches on the “family bed”. Western Culture has told us that sleeping with our children is bad in every way. I challenge this way of thinking with depicting the family bed as a sanctuary, and to be reassessed by western culture.
