15-month-old nursling taken away from her mother: Please Help

On May 31st, a Morrocan mother known as Habiba had her child taken away from her without her consent, allegedly because she breastfed her child on demand. Due to her dire financial situation, Habiba had been living with her 15 month old daughter in a women’s shelter in Madrid (Instituto Madrileño del Menor y la Familia- IMMF-, which roughly translates to Madrid’s Family and Children’s Institute).”

 

Translation: “We are all Habiba”

I rarely pass things along, but my heart goes out to this woman. She and her child are suffering extreme emotional distress as a result of their separation (which I can only imagine based on the stress my son and I have being separated only for an 8-hour workday). Please read this article and share it via your blog, Facebook, e-mail, Twitter…whatever possible. She needs as much support as we can give her.

Muchas gracias!

  1. Thanks for sharing this! There is an International Day of Action planned for 15 June, when people around the world will meet at the Spanish consulates to protest against the IMMF. Hopefully it will help give Habiba her baby back!
