Rachel Rainbolt says she was breastfeeding her one year old in front of a teacher at Meadowbrook Middle School in April when the discrimination accord.
Rainbolt said the teacher 'looked kind of disgusted and horrified.'
Rainbolt, her eight year old son, baby, and teacher were alone in a private session. No one else was in the room she says.
'She turned to me and said, 'That is not appropriate. Do you know what a breast feeding cover is? That is not appropriate to do here. Aren't you concerned that people will stare?'' Rainbolt said about the teacher.
Following the incident, Rainbolt got a call from the district saying her eight year old son could not attend a monthly group presentation class any longer because of the incident.
She is now taking a stand right outside of the front doors of the district by organizing a 'nurse-in' in Carmel Mountain.
Rainbolt also said she made a formal complaint to the state, but the state sided with the school. She is not giving up her fight that easy though. She cited that California law states that mothers may breastfeed in any public location.
Rachel Rainbolt hopes to get dozens of people to attend her public nurse in outside of the district's headquarters that is planned for next Wednesday, September 25 at 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
