Mama of two and Youtuber Melanie Murphy is our special guest on the boobingit podcast this week. Melanie lives in Ireland with her family and has been documenting her life on her hugely popular Youtube channel for over ten years.
Melanie talks to us about how her views on breastfeeding completely changed when she had her first baby and how she became a passionate breastfeeding advocate – both online and offline.
As well as sharing her own personal experience of breastfeeding her two children, Melanie discusses the challenges that have come with sharing aspects of her breastfeeding journey on social media. We also look at the deep-rooted negativity surrounding breastfeeding – both in Irish culture and in online and traditional media.
“Women are judged no-matter what they do. Women feel judgement and shame if they do breastfeed and if they don’t.”Melanie Murphy
In this episode we also touch on the stigma that exists around breastfeeding and why the act of breastfeeding is often sexualised on social media. We look at what more needs to be done to educate people on the benefits of breastfeeding – not just for baby, but for the mother and society as a whole.
