But if you're a mom, you probably also know that breastfeeding isn't always easy.
With that in mind, a number of international health organizations banded together to create World Breastfeeding Week, a seven-day occasion for supporting and encouraging nursing mothers.
So to celebrate the week here at mindbodygreen, we decided to share some of our favorite portraits of breastfeeding mothers. After all, it's not just the likes of Blake Lively, Gisele Bundchen, and Gwen Stefani posting glowing 'grams on social media. As these stunning moms show, every mother brings beauty to the act of breastfeeding.
