This Mother Donated Her Breast Milk After Losing Stillborn Son

This Mother Donated Her Breast Milk After Losing Stillborn Son

"Some people see me pump, they ask me, 'How old is your baby?' When I tell them that my baby had passed away when he was born, their faces turn to express shock and pity," Wendy Cruz-Chan writes of her son Killian, who was stillborn.

But, despite her terrible loss, Cruz-Chan continues to donate all of her pumped breast milk to babies in need. 

"I wanted to turn something tragic into something good," she told Inside Edition, something that has helped her through the healing process.

And in an effort to continue helping others and consoling herself, Cruz-Chan has created a @mothersofstillbirths account on Instagram with the hashtag #mothersofstillbirths to "break the silence of... angel babies."

For her full story, watch the video below.
