An Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) manages to keep her children close to her heart by sending them her breast milk all the way from Singapore. In a report published by ABS-CBN, Felirose Bartolome, a Filipino medical technologist, has two children back home — a two-year-old child and a 6-month-old baby.

But when that did not suffice, she took her baby to Singapore to continue feeding her. “I immediately processed my child’s passport because I want to breastfeed her for another month so I brought her to Singapore.” Felirose recalled.
