Donor Profile Story: Mercedes

Updated: Apr 6, 2020

“In March 2017, I became a part of the 1 in 3 infant/pregnancy loss statistic. I once questioned and

hated the body I lived in for “failing” to grow the little life inside me who I so badly wanted to join me on earth, but today I am grateful! I have learned you have to fight through the bad days to earn the best days of your life, and delayed gratification is a powerful thing.

Today I am the mother of two happy, healthy, growing baby boys. I had healthy pregnancies, safe

deliveries, easy recoveries and successful breastfeeding. Today not only has my body grown two healthy boys, but also continues to nourish our Wylder and now other babies in need! The power and health benefits associated with breast milk is unable to be man-made and I am so honoured to be able to help other moms who are feeling desperate like I was as their babies potentially fight for their life. I am happy to share the “liquid gold.”

My heart is so full, and so are other little bellies around the country. This collection of milk represents so much to me. Hours of my time, and each bag is packed with love and emotions.

Being a breastfeeding mama and donor has also come with many health benefits. A clean lifestyle,

vitamins, extra water, healthy food choices and substantial postpartum weight loss! If any other mamas are interested in becoming a donor or know someone who is, I would love to welcome you on this heartfilling journey with me."
