New York-based photographer Tina Boyadjieva has created a gorgeous collection of photos that shows women feeding their babies in different countries across the globe. Boyadjieva travelled to 19 countries including Sri Lanka, Uganda, Peru and Argentina, to photograph nursing mothers from different backgrounds and ethnicities and talk to them about their experiences of breastfeeding. The RCM believes that breastfeeding also has a positive impact on mother-baby relationships and nurturing of maternal and infant mental health. Women should not feel guilty or embarrassed about breastfeeding in public and as a society we must continue to develop a culture of positive support for women who wish to breastfeed. Follow Metro.

A picture showing a new mother breastfeeding her premature baby for the first time was removed by Facebook after a user complained it contained "offensive" nudity. Emma Bond, 24, said she wanted to share the image of the "special moment" with Carene, who was born 12 weeks early. Miss Bond had been told her daughter was unlikely to survive more than three days when she was born prematurely on October 3 weighing just 2lbs 2oz. But she defied expectations and Miss Bond was able to breastfeed her for the first time on Sunday, prompting her to share the image with family and friends, who had followed her progress.
