Recently, Medela surveyed mums on their experiences with breastfeeding in public. We asked what we, as a community, could do to better support breastfeeding mums.
It was a pleasure for Medela to host a selection of photographs from Suzie Blake’s famous “What Does Breastfeeding Look Like?” project, featuring beautiful and raw images of mum’s breastfeeding.
The project is world famous and has received viral online attention as well. We sat down with Suzie Blake to understand a little more about the project and what she hopes to achieve through this.
A few months ago, Medela was approached by Michelle. 10 years ago, Michelle gave birth to a very sick baby girl, 9 weeks prematurely, in Fiji. Her baby girl hung on to life for 4 weeks, while Michelle waited in intensive care for her baby to be medevacked back to Australia.
Breastfeeding as a busy mum can be challenging! So, to get some advice, we sat down with Karisha, who has 6 children. We hope that you find this interview helpful!
Medela Australia recently sat down with Sarah from Stuff Mums Like. We discussed her experience with breastfeeding and her opinions regarding Medela’s products. We hope you enjoy our discussion!

This is such a common question and one that can put many mums in a tricky and stressful situation.
Medela recently commissioned a survey with over 7,800 respondents. The survey provided insights into the support network for Australian mums and the role of their partner.
Motherhood tends to be talked about in glowingly positive terms. It is described as a beautiful, natural part of life that is all sweetness and light. The truth is however, that some mums struggle to adapt to the new realities of motherhood and have difficulty developing a strong feeling of “bonding” with their newborn baby.
It is a fact of modern motherhood that so much of our daily life is infused with feelings of guilt. A word that has such negative connotation, guilt can be negative and manipulative, and even paralyzing if you allow guilt to dictate your daily decisions. In fact, too much guilt can become not just a “feeling,” but also an all-encompassing way of life.
