Mother from Wisconsin milks milk for 63 days after the baby’s premature son dies
A grieving mother in the United States only lost her son three hours after birth, giving only a supernatural gift to other babies.
Sierra Strangfeld, Wisconsin, was 20 weeks pregnant when the fetus discovered a rare disease that could cause a life-threatening defect and lead to stillbirth.
Samuel Lee was born on 5 September two months before the deadline.
“Samuel only left my arm once when I installed the oxygen hose.
I was able to go skin to skin with him, and his heart rate and oxygen levels rose rapidly.
He seemed to know that he was with his mother.
After struggling with the porter and breastfeeding the eldest daughter, Strangfeld decided to help other mothers and leave the inheritance to a small Samuel.
Strangfeld pumped 63 days after Samuel’s death.
“I could not save Samuel’s life, but I could probably save the life of another baby,” she said in a Facebook post.
“Pumping is not shy, it’s difficult, mentally and physically, it’s even harder without a baby.”
“Why did you get mad at midnight because there was no baby to feed and why did you have to add milk, so why did you wake up at midnight?”
Strangfeld said the pump is the “only thing” she associates with her son and wanted him to be proud.
She donated milk to American Milk Bank on November 14, the date of Samuel.
