…a heart-warming plea for our society…

“Heather McLean has created a lovely, well-done montage of photos of nursing mothers of many ethnicities. Heather has filmed it with such sensitivity that surely nobody could object to such a discreet and beautiful portrayal of nature’s plan and purpose. She has created a heart-warming plea for our society to include nursing mothers and babies comfortably in all our social gatherings as the natural process it was meant to be.”
-Lyn Burnstine

To foster the acceptance…

“To foster the acceptance that comes with familiarity, Heather MacLean made Nursing Mother’s Welcome, a seven-minute DVD that shows women discretely breastfeeding as they go about their lives.”

… a beautiful film that exemplifies how normal and wonderful breastfeeding is

“Nursing Mothers Welcome is a beautiful film that exemplifies how normal and wonderful breastfeeding is! The fact that it features women nursing their children out-and-about provides an essential model for other women and families, normalizes breastfeeding in our culture, and helps to displace the myths that breastfeeding ties you down or that women can’t nurse their children comfortably in public- they can and are in this film!”
