Cleveland Natural Parenting premiere screening of breastfeeding documentary to take place in May

CLEVELAND - Cleveland Natural Parenting just received the go-ahead to premiere a documentary called "The Milky Way," having to do with women wishing to breastfeed and willing to fight to make things right. 

The movie is based on the story of Jennifer Davidson, a lactation consultant who is frustrated by the ongoing struggle mothers face related to breastfeeding, the lack of information on the subject and failure to support the nursing practice.

With the help of her mentor, Chantal Molnar, they seek out answers and aspire to create change. They talk to experts and travel to Europe to learn more about successful practices overseas until they eventually uncover the conspiracy by formula companies to brainwash the public.

In the end, the women develop solutions and a movement to restore the nursing phenomenon of the nursing mother to the cultural landscape of America.

Ironically, Cleveland Natural Parenting ran into their own breastfeeding issue while trying to promote the movie.

Sadie Rivera, a member of Cleveland Natural Parenting, said when the group tried to pay for an ad with the photo above to run on Facebook, it was rejected and the group received this message:

"...it violates Facebook's ad guidelines by including a sexual image that shows excessive amounts of skin or focuses unnecessarily on body parts."

Rivera said the response from Facebook made her very angry.

"This is sort of the whole reason the movie was made," she said.
