Model breaks taboos by breastfeeding on runway and the internet applauded!


Breastfeeding in public has always been considered as a taboo but superwoman/model Mara Martin came out on the runway breastfeeding her 4 month old daughter.

Well the brave swimsuit model did not only stop there, she was also confidently flaunting her post pregnancy bod and we absolutely loved it!

Martin was one of the 16 finalists who walked the ramp for the magazine Sports Illustrated fashion show. She walked the ramp and posed in front of the media breastfeeding her daughter Aria. The daring mother put headphones on Baby Aria’s little ears to protect them from all the jazzy noise!

Not only the magazine endorsed Martin’s bold move but so did the internet! The responses were largely positive.

According to an interview that Martin gave to the NBC, we got to know that her decision to breastfeed little Aria on ramp was completely spontaneous!

Martin wrote a powerful post on her Instagram saying, “I can’t believe I am waking up to headlines with me and my daughter in them for doing something I do every day.” She further stated something very powerful saying, “I’m so grateful to be able to share this message and hopefully normalize breastfeeding and also show others that women CAN DO IT ALL!”

All we have to say is more power to Mara Martin, hopefully more women will break this taboo and people should be able to embrace it. Normalize breastfeeding!!
