Police Woman in China Breast Feeds Helpless Babies Following Devastating Earthquake!

Breastfeeding Mother in China Literally is Saving Lives!

A Woman is contributing to the country's relief effort following the recent earthquake disaster in China.

As a mother myself, who breast fed my own five children when they were babies, my heart has been touched deeply by this story of a 29-year-old new mother and police officer in earthquake ravished China. My own heart upon hearing this story has been moved at a level I have not experience for quite sometime.

This truly goes above and beyond the call of duty, or does it?

We also refer to breast-feeding, as nursing or to nurse a child. To give nourishment. This is the epitome of "Nursing" in my opinion, of which I am confident that I share with many others. I remember as a young mother, and nursing my little babies... they were so helpless and needy. Needy of life and that which would sustain it.

Human beings need both physical and emotional nourishment, and they must be nursed with both of these. This story is a powerful witness of the combination of "motherhood".

To nurture, is what women do best. This is one of the most humane and Christlike accounts that I have become aware of.. I believe -- in my life. Yet, this is actually a very simple gesture, really. There is not a woman that I can think of, that if called upon to do the very same thing - would not do so in a literal heartbeat! This is not about color, race or religion, but life.

Women are givers of life. I don't know about the rest of you, but doesn't this make you want to do that which you can do, for those who are in great need? To contemplate the dire circumstances that so many in the world suffer from, because of various circumstances - today - has caused me to want to give. Not necessarily money, although that is a critical element and greatly needed.

But to reach out to others and give of my heart in ways that give life...

The Compassion of One!

ONE Mother and Police Woman Breast Feed Needy Babies In China...

Here is the story in brief:

A police woman in China is contributing to the country's relief effort following the recent earthquake disaster, and doing so in a very personal way – by breast-feeding eight babies.

This amazing 29-year-old chinese woman, a new mother herself, is being declared a "hero" worldwide - as this story of true nurturing and relief travels the globe!

The young mother is from the town of Jiangyou, which was also devastated by the massive earthquake. The baby that she recently gave birth to, is being cared for by her family while she continues to do the work that is necessary following the earthquake.

"She is nursing the children of three women who were left homeless by the quake and are too traumatized to give milk, as well as five orphans, the report says.

The babies who lost their parents have been put in an orphanage which does not have powdered milk, it says."

The death toll continues to rise from this tragedy...

This is a true act of charity.

I hope this inspires all of us to realize that we can do so much more. This was an act that came absolutely natural to this mother. She has told reporters that she is embarrassed by all the attention, because to her this was no big deal. She said she just did what needed to be done. So seemingly simple, yet powerful!

This is really touching. If people have to post pictures of breasts on Hubpages, these are the ones they should see and publish.

Me too. This really teaches just how we are enabled to serve others, and that is because others are willing to serve us and lift our burdens.

A wonderful principle. We are not each individually able to do it all - but together we are pretty good about taking care of the one.

That is the beauty of this story. If this act, by one mother was that which at first thought was "normal" behavior, then we would not have much of a story...

The nursing by a mother of 'her' baby, is perhaps the most natural of all human behavior. Breast feeding your baby is an extremely intimate experiences - that a mother and her baby enjoy.

A profound realization for a mother, is the fact that this tiny helpless child would literally die, if you as their mother did not nurture your baby physically. (emotional is important) Mothers are givers of life -- and when a baby is totally dependent on you - it is the incredible experience of truly coming to know that you are life to your child.

Mothers are deeply connected to their babies... and this is why. Life is clinging to life... in order to live, etc...

Once a mother has made this connection, to her power - she becomes more aware of her ability to save life by her own actions. This is one of the powerful and innate qualities of women.

As you mentioned, desperate times require desperate measures... I assure you, that although the need was truly desperate, the action performed by this mother in China, is that which would be the most natural result of this circumstances.

I do not believe that there is a woman alive, that if in the same situation and ability - would not have done exactly the same thing, without a thought.

I am certain the results of this truly amazing, but completely natural exchange between all mothers and babies in this story were powerful.

Deperation was turned immediately to Peace, Gratitude, Love... and ultimately all experienced the knowledge that we are all ONE.

Thank you for expressing the very 'normal' feelings and thoughts of many people, who may not understand at first thought...

Stories such as these restore my faith in humanity. As a mother of five, I would have done the same. I'm sure any mother would step in during this time of need.

Compassion is a rare find these days. Thank you for brining this story to us.

What a wonderful thing for this woman to do. I want to point out though that in the US some women are not allowed to help feed another child for an incredibly stupid reason.

I was devastated when after the death of my daughter I was NOT allowed to donate breastmilk. I am a reasonably healthy 27 year old woman who had more than adequate supply with my son, the clotting disorder which caused my daughter's death was not a problem for breastfeeding - instead, it was because I lived in the UK during the 1980s and so cannot donate blood, and the breast milk banks went by blood bank rules.

I'm so sorry to hear about the death of your daughter. I cannot imagine such a loss. I love that you would have, if you could of - donated your own breast milk to another child. I call that, true motherhood. So inspiring . Thank you for sharing:-)
