Synopsis

Why do breasts and breastfeeding excite such interest, controversy, rage and passion? Breastfeeding has made a lot of headlines lately - from the controversial photo on the cover of Time magazine to Whoopi Goldberg's public bashing of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, to military moms being criticized for breastfeeding in uniform. In this intimate exploration of the social constructs that can make breastfeeding daunting for so many women, filmmaker Dana Ben-Ari follows a diverse group of expectant parents in New York City from pregnancy through the first year of their child's life.
