In a first, a vivid breastfeeding ad aired during the Golden Globes 2021 awards. NBC broadcast the ceremony, a virtual one this time, at prime time on March 1.

The commercial, in only 30 seconds, gives an inch-perfect, incisive look into the highs and lows of motherhood with a focus on breastfeeding. It makes an unabashed display of natural breasts as two diverse women cope with the laborious experience of feeding their babies, pumping, losing sleep and unclogging.

"Good moms should know how to do this. And am I a bad mom if I stop now?" one mom in the advert asks, echoing the apprehension of all new mothers.

The ">ad by Frida Mom, a mom care company, is originally at 75 seconds but was edited for television at a 30-second cut with shots featuring nipples excluded to ensure the breastfeeding ad "complied with NBCU standards and other guidelines."

"We're lifting the veil on the challenges new moms (and their breasts) face as they DIY their way through lactation woes," the ad description reads. Rachel Morrison, the first woman ever nominated for Academy Award for Best Cinematography, is the name behind the ad.

The New York Times calling the breastfeeding ad a "rarity for national TV," quoted NBCUniversal's statement that said, "We agree that the ad may push the envelope, but it is the context surrounding the visuals that makes this ad different, and we stand by it."

Here's how audiences reacted to the ad:
