Royal Brompton will be showing Holding Time for two months this spring, with an installation of photographic still portraits, a single screen animation and video recorded interviews with participating mothers. The exhibition will also feature a specially commissioned piece for the Trust, which includes interviews with Sabrina Byrne and doctors and nurses who support mothers with seriously ill babies through the process of breastfeeding. The finished piece will be on permanent exhibition in the expressing room in Rose Ward after the exhibition.
This website has grown out of an informal alliance of breastfeeding mothers, a midwife, midwifery support workers, children's centre staff and a photographer all based in Hampshire, UK. We are building a photographic picture library of images that document the many different ways mothers breastfeed their babies and children in everyday situations, both at home and particularly out and about in public.
We hope the images will inspire women who are breastfeeding or thinking of breastfeeding to become more confident about how, when and where they can breastfeed.
The library is also a resource for professionals and others engaged in breastfeeding promotion and education.
