Model Walks The Sports Illustrated Catwalk Whilst Breastfeeding

Mara Martin, mother of a five month old baby, was celebrated last week for walking the Sports Illustrated catwalk whilst breastfeeding.

 

The occasion went viral on social media as people are thrilled to see motherhood enter the typically unrealistic and over-glossed industry of Fashion. The decision to walk whilst breastfeeding was spontaneous, as MJ Day – the swimsuit editor – had commented: “I saw that Mara’s baby was sleeping and peacefully nursing. I asked Mara if she would want to walk and continue to nurse […] I loved the idea to be able to allow Mara to keep nursing and further highlight how incredible and beautiful women are.”
