Tasha Maile is a vlogger from San Diego who is a huge advocate of natural and homeopathic remedies. Her YouTube channel which is under ‘Spiritual Tasha Mama’ showcases videos of her embracing a vegan diet, breastfeeding her three boys and now she has also confessed to having sex with her husband while breastfeeding her baby. In the video, the now mother of three admits that she thinks it is okay to have sex while breastfeeding.
She said: ‘the baby is not judging you and thinking ‘my mum and dad are having sex.’’’
And many people are divided about this controversial opinion.
Tasha went on to say: ‘I just like to share my life with others. Being an adult about the conversation: the baby was sleeping while breastfeeding and again, being an adult, I think we all like sex. It’s totally fine.’
She said that her child was asleep at the time and that her baby boy had been ‘very attached’ to her at the time and that he was simply ‘there’ and was ‘not involved.’
It was during an interview on a UK show known as ‘This Morning’ where Tasha defended her views.
‘Even if the baby is awake and off to the side … If the baby is OK, they’re not judging you. It’s not about being right or wrong. If you’re having sex in front of your children and it feels right then it feels right.’
And the further controversy was sparked after a video emerged of her breastfeeding her three and five-year-old sons.
A viewer commented: ‘’I find this video very disturbing. She wants viewers to believe this is a natural mother and child bonding while breastfeeding.’
She continued: ‘breastfeeding is a natural, beautiful extension of the mother and child bonding. However, this woman’s exhibitionism certainly takes away from the wonderful bonding between mother and child.’
And despite the mounting criticism against Tasha, she still has many supporters. Madeleine Ellisman wrote: ‘that’s what I’ve always told my kids. Cows milk IS for calves and breastmilk is for humans! And good for her for nursing her kids till she and they are ready to wean. Her kids will be super healthy as will she.’
