Actress, Rachel McAdams, is shining a light on what it can be like for a new mum to go back to work while still nursing an infant at home.

In a photo shoot for “Girls. Girls. Girls.” magazine, a glammed-up McAdams is seen using a breast pump while decked out in Versace and a Bulgari diamond necklace.

The picture was taken about six months after Ms McAdams gave birth to her son, said photographer Claire Rothstein, who posted the shot on her Instagram page.

Ms McAdams was breastfeeding at the time and needed to express milk between shots.

“We had a mutual appreciation disagreement about whose idea it was to take this picture but I’m still sure it was hers which makes me love her even more,” wrote Rothstein, the magazine’s founder and editor.

“Breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world and I can’t for the life of me imagine why or how it is ever frowned upon or scared of,” she added. “I don’t even think it needs explaining but just wanted to put this out there, as if it even changes one person’s perception of something so natural, so normal, so amazing then that’s great.”

A million reasons why I wanted to post this picture. Obviously #rachelmcadams looks incredible and was quite literally the dream to work with but also this shoot was about 6 months post her giving birth to her son, so between shots she was expressing/pumping as still breastfeeding. We had a mutual appreciation disagreement about who’s idea it was to take this picture but I’m still sure it was hers which makes me love her even more. Breastfeeding is the most normal thing in the world and I can’t for the life of me imagine why or how it is ever frowned upon or scared of. I don’t even think it needs explaining but just wanted to put this out there, as if it even changes one person’s perception of something so natural, so normal, so amazing then that’s great. Besides she’s wearing Versace and @bulgariofficial diamonds and is just fucking major. Big shout out to all the girls ???????? #rachelmcadams for @girls.girls.girls.magazine cover shoot ???? @clairerothstein #pleaseshare Side note: I did not look anywhere near as fabulous as this when feeding/pumping. And that’s ok too.
