In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, moms across the globe are sharing their breastfeeding journeys. Each mom has a different experience with breastfeeding, each as meaningful and powerful as the next, no matter how long or short it lasted. We’ve rounded up the top celebs who have shared their own personal stories!

Troian Bellisario

Actress Troian Bellisario from Pretty Little Liars posted an adorable photo of herself breastfeeding her daughter, whose name has yet to be revealed, despite being born nearly a year ago. Troian has kept her motherhood life fairly private since giving birth, sharing only a few images with her daughter, none of which show her face. Troian gets very real and raw about her journey, which is incredibly refreshing for other moms to read.
