Lovely breastfeeding scene in "Precious"

Went to see the film Precious (2009, USA) last night and was surprised to see a very tender depiction of breastfeeding. Precious is a teenage girl who has endured extreme physical, sexual and emotional abuse throughout her life. Just after giving birth to her second child, she is shown nursing him in her hospital bed. It is a quiet and loving moment, one of the few in a very rough film. In this scene, the rest of the painful world that Precious inhabits falls away for a few moments. Kudos to the filmmakers for depicting breastfeeding in such a straightforward and affirming way.
