Australian MP And Supermom Creates History In Parliament, Passes Motion While Breastfeeding

In a world laded with societal and gender stereotypes, breaking the glass ceiling becomes the much-needed change we seek for. And, women, as you know, excel at doing so. It was just last month, Australian Senator became the first woman ever to breastfeed in the parliament. And, she’s added another first to her cap.

MP of Australian Parliament, Larissa Waters became the first woman to pass a motion while breastfeeding her three-month-old baby girl, Alia Joy.


On Thursday, Waters put forward a motion on Black Lung disease while cradling her daughter, Alia.


She took to Twitter to announce her ‘first’ yet again.


She had done that, even when she became the first woman to breastfeed in the chamber.

This is the same Parliament, where back in 2009, Sarah Hanson-Young’s two-year-old daughter Kora was taken from her arms and taken away from the Senate chamber. They certainly come a long way, haven’t they?


In no time, Larissa became the talk of the social media and we can’t help but add to it. 🙂

Kudos to the likes of Waters who are pushing the envelope, the right way!
