Australian MP Becomes the First Woman to Breastfeed in Parliament & She Does It Like a Boss
Australian MP Larissa Waters recently made history by becoming the first woman to breastfeed in parliament. In the short video of the parliament session, she confidently and comfortably addresses the chamber to move a motion. She does this while breastfeeding her baby and totally aces her speech. The other parliamentarians can be seen smiling and warmly welcoming the act, not making any fuss about it.
It's amazing how such a natural act can be inspiring and empowering. She was speaking about black lung disease, a condition that affects coal miners, while breastfeeding 14-week-old Alia Joy, who has become a regular attendee at Australia’s Senate because of her mother's job.
Watch the video here:
After she delivered the address, Waters said in a tweet: "First time I've had to move a Senate motion while breastfeeding! And my partner in crime moved her own motion just before mine, bless her."
We are rooting for both MP Waters and Alia Joy to keep being awesome!
