This Police Officer And New Mother Helped To Breastfeed A Poorly Neglected Infant After Hospital Staff Refused To Help

A police officer from Argentina took the call of duty to new heights recently when she opted to help a child in need. Now, a recent photo capturing her moment of action is going viral on the internet and stirring up conversations about what it means to be a mother in a world where there is so much desperation and hunger.

Celeste Jaqueline Ayala was working at a hospital in Buenos Aires when she heard a baby crying.

The police officer, who is a mother to a newborn, approached the hospital staff and asked if she could help to comfort the baby who had recently been taken away from his mother. According to reports, the hospital described the child as “smelly and dirty.” After speaking to hospital management, Ayala sat down with the infant and lent him her beast to feed. According to CNN, the Buenos Aires Provincial Police didn’t explain why the child had been taken from his mother.

“I noticed that he was hungry, as he was putting his hand into his mouth, so I asked to hug him and breastfeed him,” Celeste Jaqueline Ayala told Yahoo Finance. “It was a sad moment, it broke my soul seeing him like this, society should be sensitive to the issues affecting children, it cannot keep happening.”

Ayala’s colleague snapped a photo of the incident which occurred on August 14. and posted it on Facebook.

Marcos Heredia, who took and posted the photo wrote on his wall “I want to make public this great gesture of love that you displayed today with this baby, who without knowing you didn’t hesitate and for a moment you fulfilled how if you were her mother, you don’t care about filth and smell like professional lords of the hospital manifest. Things like that don’t look every day.”

In the days that followed, the image received hundreds of thousands of comments and shares. Speaking to CNN Heredia explained that he didn’t know why the hospital wouldn’t feed the baby initially.

As a result of her actions, Ayala has been promoted from officer to sergeant.

In a tweet about the incident, Cristian Ritondo, the minister of security of the Buenos Aires province wrote “We wanted to thank (Ayala) in person for that gesture of spontaneous love that managed to calm the baby’s cry… An officer we’re proud of. An officer we want.”

Once news of Ayala’s gesture spread, users online were quick to praise her for her generosity.

Many pointed out that in a world where breastfeeding in public remains taboo, her gesture was truly one of a kind.

Others have praised Ayala for taking care of the malnourished baby when a hospital wouldn’t.

Kehlani Welcomes Baby Girl After “Hard But Powerful” Unmedicated Home Birth

R&B star Kehlani is a mommy. The singer welcomed her first child, baby girl Adeya, over the weekend.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Lani disclosed that she had an unmedicated home birth, describing the experience as both strenuous and beautiful.

“This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home,” the 23-year-old crooner captioned a photo of a baby blanket with colorful pine trees. “Unmedicated home birth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison.”

Lani, who had her first baby with guitarist Javie Young-White, talked more about her decision to have a home birth on Twitter.

“All birth is extremely hard and transformative,” she said. “Home birth is a medical decision as is hospital birth, all birth is mind blowing & powerful. … it’s a next level journey whichever way.”

While emphasizing the splendor and power of childbirth, she didn’t deny the physical pain that accompanies it.

“But I hope everyone knows no one can tell me SHIT after that because LORD…next level, no words!”

Lani said she wouldn’t be posting on social media much in order to rest and spend time with her new family but sent her gratitude to her fans for their love, support and well wishes.

Days before the birth of her child, Lani released the music video for “Butterfly,” which appears on the singer’s While We Wait mixtape that dropped last month.

Christina Milian’s Sister Appears on ‘Botched’ After Traumatic Surgery And Death Of Her Newborn Left Her Scarred

Christina Milian’s Sister Appears on ‘Botched’ After Traumatic Surgery And Death Of Her Newborn Left Her Scarred

It’s been four years since fans of Cuban-American singer Christina Milian watched as her younger sister Danielle experience the heartbreaking experiencing no mother should have to bare. After weeks of anticipation on Millian’s TV show at the time, and nine months in real life, Danielle gave birth to a son who had been diagnosed with omphalocele, only to watch him die hours later. It was a harrowing moment for the Milian family and their fans and while 5 years have passed, Danielle is still very much scarred from the experience.

Her recent appearance on the show “Botched,” revealed just how much.

During her appearance on the show, Milian opened up about the emotional and physical scars she was left behind after the death of her child.

Danielle Milian has dealt with some unfortunate medical problems in the past. In 2015, Milian gave birth to a baby boy named Richie born with Omphalocele, an often fatal condition where interior organs form on the outside of the body. Unfortunately, Richie died a few hours after being born. The traumatic experience still impacts her to this day. When Dr. Dubrow warned her that the tummy tuck would leave her with a scar, Milian responded: “I welcome new scars if they help me get rid of all the old ones with the negative connotations connected to them”.

According to plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow, Milian’s abdominal wall has been “dramatically separated” from pregnancy and gastric sleeve surgery.

“You’ve had some bad things happen to you so maybe its time for you to have some good things happen to you,” Dr. Dubrow said during the show’s segment after agreeing to help her by providing a full regular tummy tuck.

Twitter, as usual, had quite a few opinions on Danielle Milian’s decision to opt for corrective plastic surgery.

The truth of the matter is, plastic surgery is still a controversial topic.

Some Twitter users were complimentary to the mission of the show, which is to improve people’s lives after they’ve been negatively impacted by poorly-done surgery

i wish all doctors came across so concerned. i find that I’m rushed and feel less important. i kniw we have probelms with the healthcare system. communucation is key but WOW. I LOVE THIS SHOW. Fixng people’s lives one episode at a time!!!! #veryimpressed— Debby G (@DebbyG99285194) March 12, 2019

Women, especially, know the feeling of being neglected by doctors who don’t take our concerns seriously.

Some Latinas found this incident to act as a sort of warning for those considering plastic surgery.

It’s easy to forget that the decision to get plastic surgery shouldn’t be taken lightly–it’s still major surgery that requires anesthesia and weeks of recovery time.

Others want the doctors to spill the tea on which plastic surgeons are the ones botching peoples’ surgeries (and we can’t blame them!)

It’s hard to be confidently make a decision regarding your health and appearance when there are so many cases of plastic surgery gone wrong.

We, for one, hope that Danielle Milian’s surgery went well and that her body brings her nothing but joy from now on.
