Breastfeeding shaming hits a new low.
As if new mothers already didn’t have a hard time dealing with the breastfeeding police everywhere they go (and especially on social media), this right here takes breastfeeding-shaming to a whole new low.
As I’m sure plenty of mothers out there will agree with me, breastfeeding is no walk in the park. You struggle to have your baby latch on or like in my case, your baby will only feed from one boob and not the other. And that’s why I was so thankful for the support and encouragement I got from the hospital nurses who patiently worked with me when I began my breastfeeding journey after I gave birth and before I went home.
Yet, for one new mother she sure as heck didn’t expect this reaction when she breastfed her baby at the hospital. In fact, what her doctor said to her is something no mother should hear from a medical professional… ever!
According to reports, one doctor called a mother a ‘prostitute’ for breastfeeding in a hospital.
