Woman Banned from Breastfeeding Because of Tattoo

There had been issues about breastfeeding- on various angles and occurrences. But this one is different as it involved tattooing and breastfeeding.

mother banned breastfeeding tattoo

A 20-year-old Australian woman was tattooed after giving birth and was banned from breastfeeding by a judge as it may expose the baby to some risk, AFP reported.

"Does that mean that women who expose themselves to any sort of risks around the contraction of a blood-borne virus... shouldn't be allowed to breastfeed?" the unidentified woman, who had submitted an appeal to be heard by the Family Court in Sydney on Friday.

The woman had a tattoo on a finger and a foot without telling the tattoo artist she was breastfeeding.

Because of this, the father of the 11-month-old boy, who is separated from the mother, claimed that his former partner had mental health and drug issues, thus, taking custody of the child.

The Federal Circuit Court agreed on the woman's petition to have primary care of the child provided that she avoid breastfeeding.

Despite coming out negative for hepatitis and HIV tests, she was still prohibited to do breastfeeding because she may have contracted a blood-borne disease when having the tattoos.

Chief executive Rebecca Naylor of the Australian Breastfeeding Association said that as long as the tattoo was done in a reputable way and the infection control procedures are followed, the woman is safe and capable of breastfeeding.

So, what do you think of this story? I honestly think the woman could and should breastfeed her son. The HIV and hepatitis results turned negative anyway. And it would benefit the baby. 

We have to bear in mind that not all moms are able to breastfeed their young ones. This woman was blessed to produce milk and provide milk. Why hinder that blessing?

Yes, it is not safe to have a tattoo WHILE pregnant but this case is different because she was tattooed after giving birth and was even tested to speculated risk that may harm the baby. 

What are your thoughts?
