Jaime King on Posting a Picture of Her Breastfeeding: Every Woman Has a Choice To Do What She Wants
Here’s what the 35-year-old Hart of Dixie actress had to share with the mag:
On posting that breastfeeding picture: “It was 4 am, and I was breastfeeding my son, when the woman who was helping me take care of him took the picture. Everything you could possibly feel, I was feeling during that sacred, challenging, beautiful, scary time. I had been hearing so much BS about breastfeeding (being) the only way and that if women use formula there must be something wrong with them. And it made me think about this thing within mommy-hood where there’s all this women against women stuff going on, so I posted it because I believe every woman has a right and a choice to do what she wants to do.”
On having trouble conceiving James-Knight: “I had never spoken publicly about what I’d been through in regards to endometriosis and my process of trying to conceive my son, but I’d gone all these years with this undiagnosed, very painful thing that many young women have but that we just don’t talk about”
On her past life: “I’ve always felt that it was important to share my truth, specifically because I want people to know that the processes that we all go through, yes, they’re challenging sometimes; yes, they can be heartbreaking; but above all, they’re experiences that we all share.”
