An artist and mum of twins has shared an empowering photo of herself breastfeeding her two twins while working in an attempt to prove mothers can be career women, too.
Sharing a ‘throwback’ photo to when her twins were just five weeks old, Hein Koh whose post has gone viral,wrote on Facebook:
. “Despite the sleep deprivation and frequent (every 2-3 hours, 24/7, 45 minutes at a time) breastfeeding , I was still getting sh** done.” Referring to Marina Abramovic, an artist who ‘thinks children hold women back in the art world’, she said: “All Marina knows is her own experience, and it may be true for her, but that is not everyone’s experience nor truth.”
“Becoming a mom (of twins no less) has personally helped me become a better artist – I learned to be extremely efficient with my time, prioritize what’s important and lt go of the rest, and multitask like a champ.I learned to function (even if barely) on very little sleep, and out of the chaos, insanity and even torture at times, a flood of new emotions entered into my work, becoming more interesting and layered as a result.What I am saying is that parenting is like any other challenge in life – the biggest f***ing challenge in my own life thus far – and if you embrace it and figure out creative solutions, you can emerge a better person.
