Breastfeeding in Public: This Discomfort Matters

iStock-576561300.jpg

'There is a geography to breastfeeding. Breastfeeding in public is about breastfeeding in front of others, and it includes many different spaces, not those most obviously public like park or street benches. It can be private but public spaces such as cafes, restaurants, shopping malls. It can even in your own living room when others are around. More welcoming common and public spaces are needed. Public spaces express many of the values and needs and prevalent uses of the spaces. If we are in spaces of consumption, like urban city centres, the shapes of these spaces favour circulation, movement, ability to access products and services. But breastfeeding requires, sometimes, to be able to sit down, take our time; to feel safe; to have shelter; to be able to accommodate our bodies and the things we carry.' - Lucila Newell, The Parlour 2017

Lisa Creagh and Lucila Newell look at the barriers to public breastfeeding and asks the question: “How can public spaces be redesigned to incorporate breastfeeding?”

Mothers, architects, public policy makers and anyone interested in the issue of designing public space to encourage and support breastfeeding are invited to attend this three hour workshop”
