Torah Bright Breastfeeding
The Aussie Olympian has delighted her followers with a powerful series of photos celebrating motherhood – with one ‘insane’ breastfeeding photo.
Bright had shared the picture on May 16, Sunday; it was not the only picture that was posted.
She had shared other pictures from what looked like family time at the beach. The caption for these pictures read, “Becoming a mother has unleashed something inside of me.💖It’s deeply spiritual. 💖It’s primal. 💖It’s raw. 💖it’s fierce. 💖It is pure.💖I am mother.”
“My prayer for all mothers, now and in the future is that they be heard. Honoured. Respected and encouraged to trust their intuition.”
Torah Bright Photo
This post was something that marked Bright’s first mother’s Day after the birth of her 10-month-old son Flow. Many users, however, did not take the picture of her son suckling lightly and trolled the mother. One user commented how the baby “latched on for likes.”
But it was a photo of her breastfeeding her 10-month-old son Flow while doing a headstand that went viral.

“That is one crazy powerful photo,” one of her followers commented.
Another user commented on the post and said, “My first question is – why?? Sure I get it’s natural & a beautiful thing – but I don’t post my first bowel movement of the day standing on 1 leg. Same thing?” However, not all the comments were negative. Some even congratulated her and appreciated the post.
Torah Bright Instagram
She wrote on her Instagram story, “In my world, mothers should be each other’s cheer leaders (it’s hard enough). Embrace our quirkiness and finding the joy in every sh***y thing that is motherhood,” and added, “We all do it differently. It is not wrong or right. Motherhood is pure. I only now consider myself a Wonder Woman because I have joined the sacred MOTHERS club with you. Nothing but respect to all mothers.”
It’s not the first time Torah has shown off her multitasking motherhood skills.
Last month, she posted a photo of herself skateboarding while she breastfeeding her son.
Torah Bright Baby
She’s also shared photos of her feeding Flow, who she shares with husband and fellow snowboarder Angus Thomson, at the beach and even at the snow.
She also made it clear to her follower that what she was not looking for attention and instead explained that she “walks this earth to the beat of my own drum, led by my nutrition and search for love and joy … obviously.”
She also cited a Mary Poppins quote and said, “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and snap, the job’s a game.”
