Giant Inflatable Boobs Have Appeared All Over London

(The Mind Unleashed) Mother’s Day—what better reason to erect five larger than life inflatable boobs. The huge breasts, ranging in both size and skin tone, were spread throughout London March 31 to April 1 in an effort to encourage women to feel comfortable breastfeeding in public.

The campaign, #FreeTheFeed, was brought to life by breast pump company Elvie with the help of advertising agency Mother London. Elive is prides itself in the manufacturing of the “world’s first silent wearable breast pump.”

Mother London describes Elvie’s #FreeTheFeed campaign on their website:

Forget the chocolate and flowers for Mother’s Day 2019, because this year, Elvie wanted to give new mums a bigger and breastier gift; the freedom to feed and pump with pride. But in order to do that, they needed to smash the taboo around breastfeeding and destigmatize the subject. So, what better way to do it than by inflating five giant breasts, all of varying size and skin tones, across the London skyline, inviting anyone who has ever felt shamed or confined when feeding in public to #freethefeed.”

Tania Boler, Elvie’s CEO, said:

The #FreetheFeed campaign is an invitation to everyone to stand with all those women that have felt shamed or confined when breastfeeding or pumping.

We know the giant boobs will raise a few eyebrows, but we want to make sure no one overlooks the way that this stigma has been used to repress women.”

Despite it being the year 2019, there is still a lot of damaging stigma surrounding breastfeeding, especially doing so in public. So much so, in fact, that “only 43 percent of U.S. adults believed that women should have the right to breastfeed in public places,” according to the U.S. Surgeon General.

The Surgeon General went on to say, in “The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding,” when addressing the issue of barriers to breastfeeding:

“Restaurant and shopping center managers have reported that they would either discourage breastfeeding anywhere in their facilities or would suggest that breastfeeding mothers move to an area that was more secluded. When they have breastfed in public places, many mothers have been asked to stop breastfeeding or to leave. Such situations make women feel embarrassed and fearful of being stigmatized by people around them when they breastfeed.”

Due to pressures from society, whether directly verbalized or perceived, as well as pressure from family including their partners, many women are left staying home with their infants, attempting to feed them under cumbersome nursing covers, or in the most unpleasant of places—public bathrooms.

**Notice that Twitter has hid the above image of a women breastfeeding her infant.

Unfortunately, many people are quite vocal about their dislike of breastfeeding in public despite the fact that women’s bodies are constantly used in marketing and advertising to sell all kinds of products. And breastfeeding mothers encounter these critics constantly.

According a recent study, one in three breastfeeding moms have been forced to pump in the bathroom while at work. As a result of less than ideal pumping situations, all of the stigma surrounding breastfeeding and the resulting stress and anxiety, 30% of moms polled stopped breastfeeding earlier than they would have liked. Current recommendations suggest mothers breastfeed until a child turns two.

One in three breastfeeding mums has been forced to use the toilet at work to express milk, according to new research.

Whether you like it or not, boobs were made for feeding babies and that’s just what they’ll do.

Elvie aims to reduce that stigma and change societal norms via not so conventional means. The company is certainly no stranger when it comes to making a statement about breastfeeding.

Perhaps the next giant inflatable campaign should address the lack of changing tables in men’s restrooms, because men have babies too. Father’s Day 2019 anyone?

    Thanks for the article. My spouse and i have always seen that many people are desperate to lose weight because they wish to appear slim as well as attractive. On the other hand, they do not often realize that there are more benefits for you to losing weight additionally. Doctors say that obese people are afflicted with a variety of disorders that can be directly attributed to their excess weight. Thankfully that people who sadly are overweight in addition to suffering from diverse diseases are able to reduce the severity of their own illnesses by losing weight. It is possible to see a progressive but noted improvement in health if even a slight amount of fat reduction is attained.

    Everything said made a bunch of sense. However, think on this, suppose you
    wrote a catchier post title? I am not saying your information is not good., however what if you added something that grabbed
    people’s attention? I mean Giant Inflatable Boobs Have Appeared All Over London is a little plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news titles to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers
    interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
