- A frontliner mom who believes in exclusively breastfeeding her baby brought her baby with her to the quarantine facility
- It was a tough decision but ensuring that her baby benefits from breastmilk was the best one she made for her little one
- She admitted that she had fears, and she understood the risks that she will be taking, but a doctor has stated that moms with COVID can breastfeed for as long safety protocols are followed
- When she was finally declared COVID-free, she went back to her work as a nurse, helping others battle the virus
The decision to breastfeed is a mother's choice. One frontliner mom, Lovelinne Ramos, who works as a nurse chose to breastfeed her baby at the quarantine facility.
Lovelinne was infected with COVID-19 and she had to make a tough choice.
In GMA's report, the mom proved that one can breastfeed even with coronavirus.
Yes, there is a risk and there are fears, but the benefits that the baby will receive will surely outweigh it all.
"Yung biggest fear ko is for my daughter, na sabi ko, ‘Oh, my God, baby pa siya. Masyado pang baby 'yung anak ko. Ayoko pa mamatay, hindi pa ako puwedeng mamatay," shared the mom, but she and her baby overcame.
Of course, there were critics who also judged her or disagreed with her decision. In the end, she was able to recover and was still able to continue breastfeeding.
The government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters.
Frontliners express their fears and the difficulties that they go through at the hospital especially with the ongoing crisis.
