15 Moms Share Their Amazing Tree Of Life Breastfeeding Pictures

The world has come a long way in recent years when it comes to respecting breastfeeding and the beautiful relationship it creates between mother and child. Many laws are now in place to protect mothers who choose to pump in the workplace and those who wish to feed their precious babes in public.

While many strides have been taken, society as a whole still has a long way to go before breastfeeding gets the respect and reverence it so rightfully deserves. A photo editing app known as PicsArt is contributing to this fight with its TreeofLife editing option. This feature allows women to snap and share gorgeous images of themselves giving priceless nourishment to their treasured children. Many are sharing "brelfies" (breastfeeding selfies) on various social media platforms using this editing feature.

The images created are masterpieces that embody everything breastfeeding is, and the beautiful bond that is formed when a mother gives the elixir of life to her little one, selflessly and tirelessly. #TreeofLife is trending on Facebook, and it's not difficult to see why.

A statement from PicsArt explains the motivation behind this breathtaking photo-editing option: "The tree of life has served as a symbol for connecting all forms of creation throughout most of our history. Recounted in folklore, culture and fiction, it has often related to immortality or fertility. Today, it has become a representation of the #normalizebreastfeeding movement.”

The 15 photos below are just some of the exquisite images moms are sharing. This is yet another step in the right direction towards helping the world see breastfeeding for what it truly is: an act of life-giving love.
