Artist shocks internet with photo of herself breastfeeding twins while working
If you think you are good at multitasking, think again -- Hein Koh just raised the bar.
The Broooklyn artist recently shared a photo of herself working on her computer while breastfeeding two babies at the same time.
The throwback photo, which was taken by her husband Jim, captured a moment from last May, when her babies were then five weeks old.
She recalled an interview with artist Marina Abramović in which she said she never had children because she didn't want them to hold her back.
Koh doesn't think that's the case at all.
"All Marina knows is her own experience, and it may be true for her, but that is not everyone's experience nor truth," wrote Koh in her caption. "Becoming a #mom (of twins no less) has personally helped me become a better #artist."
She said becoming a mom helped her become more efficient and learn to prioritize.
"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 & layered as a result," she wrote.
Other moms in the comments seem to agree.
