This Victoria's Secret Angel Is Here to Tell You 'Breastfeeding Is Not Sexual It's Natural'
She says people don't have a problem with her topless photos, but they have shamed her for nursing her baby in public.
It's always refreshing when celebrity moms use their voices to fight the stigma surrounding breastfeeding. A recent addition to the ranks is Candice Swanepoel, a Victoria's Secret Angel who gave birth to her first-born son, Anacã, in October.
The 28-year-old South African beauty took to Instagram on Sunday to share a very important observation she made about women breastfeeding in public. (Read: The Perks and Benefits of Breastfeeding)
"Many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public, or even kicked out of public places for feeding their children," she wrote alongside a black and white photo of her nursing her son. "I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I've done in the name of art..?"
Since giving birth to her baby, Swanepoel has wasted no time returning to the modeling scene looking as flawless as ever. Even throughout her pregnancy, she shared several sultry photos in the nude flaunting her belly, showing how truly comfortable she is with her body and its natural processes.
"The world has been desensitized to the sexualization of the breast and to violence on tv...why should it be different when it comes to breastfeeding?" the supermodel continued. "Breastfeeding is not sexual it's natural."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
