More than 170 countries from around the world are celebrating the World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) to promote the health of babies and mothers. Breastfeeding is not a lifestyle choice, but a natural process and a responsibility that comes with various known benefits for both the mom and the baby.

Munich based photographer, Tammy Nicole, has rounded up beautiful pictures of nursing mothers, in a project titled Walks of Motherhood, to show that breastfeeding is not just about milk.
