Victoria’s Secret Model Candice Swanepoel Takes A Stand For Breastfeeding, Slams Critics In Intimate Instagram Post
Candice Swanepoel may be a Victoria's Secret model and many people adore her but she is also being shamed when she breastfeeds. The model then took to Instagram to slam the critics by posting a lengthy message and a black and white photo of her breastfeeding her baby.
Swanepoel has a son named Anaca and the 28-year-old model posted the photo on Instagram on Monday, Dec. 19. The photo shows Swanepoel feeding her two-month-old baby.
It was a close-up shot as the baby's face and her breast were seen in the snap. She started off with her post by saying that many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public or sometimes it comes to a point where mothers feeding their babies are kicked out of public places, US Weekly reported.
The lingerie model noted that she was made to feel the need to cover up when she has to feed her baby in public places but she never felt the need to cover up whenever she poses topless for editorials in the name of art. The South African bombshell continued that the world has been desensitized to the sexualization of the breast and to the violence on television so she asked why should it be different when it comes to breastfeeding.
Swanepoel noted that breastfeeding is not at all sexual. The VS Angel model stressed it is natural and those who feel it is wrong to feed babies in public need to be educated on the benefits of the act to both the mother and the baby.
Many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public, or even kicked out of public places for feeding their children. I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I've done in the name of art..? The world has been desensitized to the sexualization of the breast and to violence on tv...why should it be different when it comes to breastfeeding? -Breastfeeding is not sexual it's natural- Those who feel it is wrong to feed your child in public need to get educated on the benefits breastfeeding has on mother and child and intern on society as a whole.
