Breastfeeding is the feeding of babies and young children with milk from their mother's breast. This might be just something that babies need for survival but more importantly, it portrays the bond between a mother and a child. The love of a mother for her child. The award-winning photographer, who is also a published fine art photographer, Ivette Ivens captures Breastfeeding Goddesses which looks timeless and stunning magic that we are graced with.

It is definitely something that you might have experienced. Being a mother, or being a child. It is not only to feed the baby but all the torture and pain that a mother goes through to nurture a baby and take care of it.

Breastfeeding is uncomfortable and messy from our perspective but for a mother, it is more than just a task at hand. A mothers inner consciousness tells a different story altogether. She feels her baby more than anything else ever can. She knows what her baby is in need of and provides the best that she can.

Ivette is a Lithuanian-born photographer. She chose this unusual subject because she still believes that breastfeeding is taboo. People are ill-informed that about the benefits of a mothers milk.

Ivette Ivens said in an interview that, “It truly is the most perfect food and gift we can give a child. If people understood the benefits without being lambasted with propaganda for manmade milk, formula, etc. I believe they would view nursing as the most natural gift and not something to be sexualized.”

Ivette Ivens says... “I learned how empowering and strong we are especially when we stand for a purpose together. Additionally, I learned how beautiful someone can suddenly feel when they are forced to look at themselves (from the photographer’s lens) in a new light!”
