Breastfeeding at a Feminist Church

 I know I look very dishevelled here already (and hubby more intent on finding fishballs didn't help me groom myself before the shot) but I really wanted a breasfeeding picture in front of Molo Church, touted as a feminist church because of the sixteen images of women saints lined up on both sides inside.

Unfortunately, as much as I want an array of photos showing how I breastfed in public in Visayas... I really don't have a lot. Hubs was again, more intent on capturing other things over me nursing his second son. I guess it's too normal to be interesting for him anymore (and I don't mean that with bitterness because he's also the first to say that he doesn't worry about Yamee's nourishment because he is still nursing from me).

Anyway, I wanted a picture here because I believe that breastfeeding is the embodiment of women empowerment. Why? Because you will trust that you are capable, and should there be stumbling blocks, that they are solvable. And for the life of me, I really can't think of anything more empowering than providing food that's coming out of you.
