Kōrero Whāngai Ū – Breastfeeding Exhibition: Wednesday 3 August to Sunday 28 August 2022

To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week, the Canterbury Breastfeeding Advocacy Service as part of Te Puawaitanga ki Ōtautahi Trust introduces Kōrero Whāngai Ū, a photography exhibit that showcases the extraordinary challenge of nurturing babies.

The exhibition highlights the importance of breastfeeding for babies, breastfeeding parents, families, and communities. There is also a digital exhibition at five libraries - Tūranga, South, Te Hāpua: Halswell, Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre, Lyttelton, and Ōrauwhata: Bishopdale.

There are some wonderfully diverse stories and images of Canterbury families and their infant feeding journeys.

The photographs by Liane Helena Photography were born out of a project undertaken last August where the photos were featured alongside their stories in social spaces.

View the photos and stories in the Canterbury Breastfeeding Advocacy Service Collection in Canterbury Stories.
