An Influencer Shares Beautiful Nursing Photos

Nursing on the go satisfies both mother and baby.

Nursing can be beautiful and empowering. Parents should feel able to nurse or feed their children, however they need to and wherever they are, without shame, embarrassment, or ridicule.

That's the message that influencer and photographer Katya Nova is spreading through her Instagram page, @nurturingnovas, which has remained popular in part because of the gorgeous images showing Katya breastfeeding in a pool, at the ocean, cooking, and on the go. Based on the support Katya's page has received, many people are clearly in awe of the influencer's photos and inspiring message.

According to the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL), nursing in public is legal in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Additionally, certain states and Puerto Rico have various laws protecting parents who choose to nurse from public indecency charges. These extend to the workplace, too.

Katya's page features powerful photos of multi-tasking and nursing wherever life takes mom and baby—even at a music festival. Whichever way a parent chooses to feed their child, Katya demonstrates how to live life and still provide for her children's needs.

Below, we've rounded up some of our favorite empowering photos from Katya's page.

This article was updated on February 19, 2019 to clarify that the influencer is "nearly" topless, not topless, in the pool photo.
