Kōrero Whāngai Ū is a project a project in collaboration with the Canterbury Breastfeeding Advocacy Service (CanBreastFeed), Liane Helena Photography and some wonderful local families, to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week 2021.
In it Canterbury families share their infant feeding journeys – the trials, the tribulations and importantly, the real necessity of support and protection.
The theme of WBW2021 is “Protect Breastfeeding: a shared responsibility.”
We hope this project increases the awareness of the importance of us all protecting breastfeeding – because, as these stories demonstrate, infant feeding journeys are rarely straight-forward.
We thank all of the families involved and hope these stories help to reassure and offer hope to those who are currently struggling.
