�I felt discriminated against,� she said. �I was appalled and angry.�
Mrs Penn-Wagland was sitting in the back row of court to support a family member, who was due to appear.
She decided to feed her two-year-old daughter Chayelynne and said she was covered.
�No one was looking at me,� Mrs Penn-Wagland said.
�I was trying to keep her quiet and Chayelynne would have been asleep, but she (a security guard) interrupted me.
�She asked if she could see me outside.
�Then she said I might be more comfortable if I fed Chayelynne in another room.
�I was more than comfortable sitting where I was.�
Mrs Penn Wagland said she had every right to feed her child in the public gallery and would do it again.
The Department of the Attorney General was advised that a Serco guard spoke to a woman in court.
�The Serco guard offered the woman a room to breastfeed her child in privacy,� a spokeswoman said.
�The woman was advised that she would be recalled to court for the video link that she was interested in.
�The woman attended the video link.�
The Director of Magistrates Courts will meet Serco and court staff and the magistrate at Mandurah to emphasise that the Department is supportive of breastfeeding mothers� rights to breastfeed in the court.
