Here is a link to the politician nursing story:
http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200302/s793410.htm

Kirstie Marshall had only recently been elected and had her 11 day old baby was bought into parliament to feed - mother and baby were actually evicted because of a "no strangers in parliament" law (the baby classified as a stranger!)

There was quite a community backlash and the law has been changed to exclude breastfeeding mother's babies from the rule! Kirstie Marshall has been quoted as saying she would breastfeed in parliament again if she has another child (although she also says she found the whole experience upsetting, but is glad that it made way for a positive change).

I want everyone on this blog to know that iParty is full of it. I am an employee of iParty (who is now looking for other employment), all employees received an email today from Rick Stockellburg (one of the big guys) stating that "news reports are exaggerating the incident and that they have confidence in the intentions and sensitivity of our management in dealing with a situation like this" It went on to say that "the mother was in the middle of a narrow isle that was frequented by children" and on and on! I am a proud nursing mama and I am very upset. iParty is full of it! They have not heard the end of this one. By the way, I copied the email. I would love for everyone here to pass on the info that iParty is lying and does not support mamas, nursing or not!

I would like to photograph Dr. Tracy for the Mother Culture Gallery also. These stories need a personal and self told platform that I can help bring to fruition through photographs.

Any help is appreciated!

Good for her! I am glad she is fighting back. One family at a time making change across the country.

Leisa,

Hooray! I've been hoping to hear from moms in Australia (and New Zealand!).

I've heard that the climate for nursing in public is much better there - thanks for confirming it. You also have such great maternity leave policies compared to the U.S.

Wish I could have seen the member of parliament nursing story...

Again, another shocking story illustrating extreme ignorance about breastfeeding. I'm so glad this lady did not accept the voucher - that was just adding insult to injury!
And I'm totally with you on the "private" area suggestion. It's sad and frustrating that people still think that we breastfeeding moms should be hidden away somewhere when we are simply nurturing our babies in the way nature intended...

I feel lucky to live in Australia - these days the public are comparatively pro breastfeeding. I fed my 2 kids everywhere and the only reaction I ever got was supportive smiles from other women! There was a furore a couple of years ago when a politician breast fed in parliament and there was a chat show host who breastfed during an interview which hit the press a little while ago. The cultural differences are quite profound!

WOW! This is an awful story. It's so sad to believe that these kinds of things still go on. However, I experience them even in my own family- they wanted me to nurse in the bathroom when I went to visit a family member in the hospital (I of course refused). Then, on a recent holiday, I started to feed my baby and EVERYONE (except hubby) left the room. I regularly get asked when I'm going to give it up. Women everywhere are still being discriminated for choosing the most obvious way to care for their baby . Sad!
