Nursing and singing
Tonight was the debut performance of The Edmonton Nursing Women's Choir. Myself and eight other mums sang while wearing and (in a few cases) breastfeeding our babies, at a wine-tasting fundraiser for a human milk bank depot in Edmonton. The fundraiser was a great success and raised both awareness and money to create the depot in an Edmonton hospital. It was also a unique experience for me tonight to perform with my daughter and do a little bit towards normalizing breastfeeding in public. And then afterwards we got to have some really good cheese together too! Magda enjoyed the aptly named mild Prima Donna. A grand debut!
