Black Breastfeeding Week 2017| Bet on Black| Womens Birth and Wellness Center| Love at First Sight Photography & Doula Services

I was given the opportunity to document some beautiful mothers during black breastfeeding week celebration at Women's Birth and Wellness Center in Chapel Hill to help normalize black breastfeeding. Black infants have the highest mortality rates in our country, and yet many black women do not receive the support they need to breastfeed successfully. One of those challenges is visibility – most images of breastfeeding do not reflect a diverse population. I am hoping that by documenting these sweet mothers and babies we can help make a difference in our community.
