When I was nursing my son, I was such a mess. I had a big pillow that I strapped to my waist for him to lay on because my back hurt—and forget about nursing on the go. I once had to feed him on a stoop in the middle of the city, and I was convinced I was going to drop him the entire time.
When I saw the photo of Olympic gold medalist Torah Bright nursing her baby while literally doing a handstand, I was impressed.
Unfortunately, the trolls were out, calling her a bad mother and an attention-seeker. Bright, who is a big deal in the Australian snowboarding community, defended the image.
“Reading some of these comments made me sad,” Bright wrote in her now-expired Instagram story.
“In my world, mothers should be each other’s cheer leaders (it’s hard enough). Embrace our quirkiness and finding the joy in every s****y thing that is motherhood.”
“We all do it differently. It is not wrong or right. Motherhood is pure. I only now consider myself a Wonder Woman because I have joined the sacred MOTHERS club with you. Nothing but respect to all mothers.”
Bright, who has two Olympic medals, has been chronicling her motherhood journey since giving birth to a baby boy in July.
