Breastfeeding Mom Was Abruptly Contacted By The Church Telling Her To Be Decreet While Feeding Her Baby
Apparently, eyeballing breastfeeding mothers is a norm. Most social activists advocate that it's just like denying the most natural thing about humans. Maybe mothers can cover up a little or maybe the public can ease up some more!
Breastfeeding issue in churches is still on the rise and it's not backing down any time soon. Mothers are instructed to find their way out or find a nursery while their little ones are making hunger strikes.
Misti Ryan, a Christian lactation consultant in Texas remarked:
A mother should be allowed to breastfeed modestly and nurse in church if she wants to.

Still, many Americans, according to a series of informal conversations and online forums feel queasy about sitting next to a breastfeeding woman. What harm that could possibly bring right? Though in the given case, the church is making a point.
The mother was told to cover herself
The Naz Church in Brighton allegedly sent a Facebook message to the mommy of three kids, Amy Marchant. They asked her to be discreet after she was once spotted nursing her 1-year-old baby. The reason, they proposed was that a sight of the bare breast could make men Iust and stumble in the holy place.
Amy, 29 expressed to Yahoo! News:
I was utterly shocked, we had been attending the same church for two years, and I had nursed before with no complaints from anyone.
It's unimaginable that she was accused of immodesty for potentially inspiring intimacy in men! One of the pastors later heartedly apologized to her as she was left embarrassed over nothing so serious. People had something say about the matter too.
Some sided with the church while commenting.
But others supported the mother firmly.
