    Research output: Working paper/PreprintWorking paper


    This study explores commonalities and differences on experience of breastfeeding in public spaces among different demographic groups, specifically migrant mothers. Results suggest that breastfeeding practices outside of the household were modified after arrival to the UK and adjusted to what was perceived as dominant culture. Variation of approach to breastfeeding in the public space calls for intersectional lenses in future interventions and designs. Data shows that more vulnerable mothers need more support and encouragement to breastfeeding in public.
