Celebrities in the Spotlight

This year, it is fair to say that breastfeeding has been hitting the headlines week on week and part of this is down to the rise in celebrities sharing photos of themselves breastfeeding their little ones and in some cases even expressing!

The latest craze of breastfeeding selfies, donned ‘brelfies’ has dominated social media as mums worldwide have shared photos of their babies breastfeeding across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Joining the fun campaign to both promote and normalise breastfeeding to a wider audience, we have seen many famous faces share ‘brelfies’ including rock artists Gwen Stefani and Pink, socialite Tamara Ecclestone, supermodel Gisele Bündchen and actresses Alyssa Milano and Blake Lively.

We are thrilled to see celebrities supporting breastfeeding and there definitely seems to be a further trend forming of mothers sharing photos during an expressing session too. Helping to give an even greater overview of a mum’s breastfeeding journey, this is not only great exposure but also very reassuring for the breastfeeding community as a whole.

We have been delighted to see that so many famous faces have chosen Medela for their breastpumps and have been so excited to see celebrities sharing their Medela breastfeeding experiences across social media including TV Reality Star Kourtney Kardashian, TV Presenter Julia Bradbury, The Saturday’s Una Foden, Author, Giovanna Fletcher and model, Doutzen Kroes.
