"Many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public, or even kicked out of public places for feeding their children. I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I've done in the name of art?" the model wrote, alongside a photograph of her son breastfeeding.
Victoria's Secret Angel Swanepoel - who took a break from the annual lingerie extravaganza this year, that took place a month after the birth of her son - isn't the first star to use their fame to promote positivity around breastfeeding. Fellow Vogue models Miranda Kerr, Gisele Bündchen and Natalia Vodianova have all shared images of them breastfeeding their newborns on their social-media accounts.
