Karel Marquez Donates Breast Milk to a Preemie Baby in NeedKarel Marquez deep-freezes her excess breast milk, which she has a lot of, although she has not actually used a breast pump to collect her liquid gold.by Rachel Perez .
It only took one message for Karel Marquez Fariñas to donate her excess breast milk to another mom in need. The actress gave her breast milk to her friend, businesswoman Cesca Rivas, for the latter's preemie son, Liam.
“I have only about 42 bags of 150 to 250ml [of] frozen breastmilk that can last for a few days if I don’t nurse at all, but I know Kobe will be more than happy to share mama’s breastmilk, to make another baby stronger!” Karel wrote on Instagram last August 18, 2019.
“I am more than happy to donate some of my recent stash (July 2019 stored) for a good friend of mine whose baby is in the hospital for about two weeks, and was born at 35 weeks,” she said. Out of the 42, Karel donated nine full bags of breast milk.
Her friend, Cesca, gave birth to baby Liam prematurely at just 35 weeks on August 14, 2019. She was recently discharged from the hospital, but her baby had to stay on for two more weeks. Cesca has not produced enough breast milk for Liam's needs, and milk banks are closed on weekends.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“One message to Karel and she didn’t hesitate to share her milk stash with us. Thank you, love. We’re forever grateful,” Cesca wrote.
“I’m happy knowing lang that it can help Liam get stronger while you both recover. That’s all that matters to me.” Karel replied via Instagram Stories. She also sent virtual hugs and wished Cesca and Liam to get better so they can plan a playdate soon.
