A link below to an article written by Veronika Robinson.  Veronika, author and editor of The Mother magazine, appeared in the Channel 4 programme ‘Extraordinary Breastfeeding’ and also posted a video of her breastfeeding her 8yr old daughter on Youtube.

A courageous woman, Veronika braved the limelight at a time (2006) when the media was still deadly intent on portraying us as freaks, and at a time when they could still get away with it, without drawing down an outcry from hundreds of us – as happened when the first article on BOC appeared in The Guardian in Jan 2010 (see comments at the end of the online version).

The landscape has changed tremendously since my daughter self-weaned in Dec 98/Jan 99 [aged six and a half], and it has noticeably changed since 2006. I believe further radical change is underway – the culture is unquestionably in flux, a sure sign that evolution is in process! All we need do is stay strong and stay confident – time and Truth are on our side, we WILL be vindicated.

We all of us owe a debt of gratitude to the trailblazers – Veronika is one of them.
