Cancer didn’t stop this mama from giving her baby breastmilk – It’s Cancer, Baby episode 4

I hadn’t heard of this mini-documentary webseries before coming across this piece on Cafe Mom‘s – The Stir.

Joanna is a new mom who is also battling cancer, and realises that she won’t be able to breastfeed for very long due to the drugs she has to take for chemotherapy. So she finds a donor who enables Joanna’s baby to continue receiving breastmilk for the first three months of her life. More in the video below.

 

Watching this made me so grateful to be a part of this amazing community where there’s a space for families to ask for or offer breastmilk donations. We’re doing a good thing here, people. Thanks for being in this with us.
