MamaBlogger365 – abNormally Nursing, an Art Exhibit by Lauren Cockerham-Colas

Announcing a new exhibit by Lauren Cockerham-Colas

Two years into her master’s project, Lauren created an exhibit entitled abNORMALLY NURSING: an exhibition and exploration of breastfeeding. The exhibit was developed for healthcare professionals to educate them on the benefits of extended breastfeeding. The exhibit consisted of 22 photographs of mother-child extended breastfeeding dyads along with extended nursing facts.
Over the course of approximately a year’s time, she photographed more than 50 extended nursing families across five different states. The exhibit was used as a research tool to evaluate and influence the knowledge and attitudes of healthcare professionals towards extended breastfeeding. Very recently, the results of the research were published within the peer reviewed scientific journal, Breastfeeding Medicine.
Lauren’s exhibit is up in the Museum entry-gallery during the month of January, 2012.
The Museum Of Motherhood is the first and only facility of its kind, celebrating the “her”story of mothers around the world. We need your help — please make your tax-deductible contribution today!Visit the Museum of Motherhood, NOW OPEN in NYC – Tues.-Sun., 10:45-6:30
