I became very, very sick 12 days after my son was born. I was in ICU for 2 weeks and in high dependency for the next 3. My friend knew how important it was to me that I breastfed him and that he received breastmilk.
While I was fighting for my life, she would bring her expressed milk to the hospital and even fed him from her breast. It is singularly the kindest thing anyone has ever done for me. I will be eternally grateful to her for this gift.
Some may think that’s weird, letting someone else feed your baby from her body, but it was very special to me. – Caroline x
