Pictured above, guys is a show of raw strength and love by an unidentified strong mother.
According to the midwife centre that published the pics online, she
had planned a peaceful water birth but early in her pregnancy, noticed a
suspicious breast lump.
After separate evaluations and reports saying it was “probably
benign”, she consulted a breast specialist. The lumps were biopsied and
mom was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer around 20 weeks pregnant.
She had a left breast mastectomy a few days later and immediately
started chemo while pregnant with her miracle baby.
At 36 weeks, she was induced and birthed a perfectly healthy baby
BOY. She really wanted to breastfeed after having many of her birth
choices and preferences taken from her if only for a short time because
cancer treatments resume when she is discharged from the hospital. After
her baby was born, he latched to her right breast all on his own and
the room was full of emotion.
These images show the incredible strength and love through the art
of breastfeeding. Join us in wishing both mother and child well and
please pray for her and her miracle baby. They have a long road ahead,
the midwife centre says. Second photo of her crying.
