A Breastfeeding Documentary - Finally!

I wonder why I didn't do this a long time ago. Breastfeeding was a big part of my life and Raees'. Yet the idea to produce a documentary on it occurred just a few months ago.

For this particular Magseven episode, I call it Feed The Future - a story about mothers fighting for their right to nurse in public and raise awareness on the amazing benefits of breastfeeding. Here's the synopsis:

"A group of women in Malaysia are fighting for a cause. And it is expected to raise many eyebrows.

Acress Dynas Mokhtar is joining the bandwagon in an effort to raise awareness on one of human's most basic needs.

Up north, more women are participating in the campaign.

That includes Connie Mooi - a determined mother who believes in giving only the best for her children. and she is on a mission to shun discrimination against breastfeeding."

 

So guys, mark your calendars: Sunday, 22 April 3.30pm and repeat on Tuesday, 24 april 7.30pm on NTV7. You may even see some familiar faces in it too :)

eh...u did this ka?...i saw it on ntv7 and was telling my husband there shd be more awareness campaign of public feeding such as this...and i totally agree, malaysians seriously need to be educated about this, and it is no cause for any mothers to be ashamed to feed their babies in front of the public...(but of course, maintaining some level of decency...:P)
