Patrisha Organo, a 24-year-old flight attendant was working on a routine flight on board a Philippine Airlines Express plane and she saw that a fellow mother was in dire need.

She lent a hand instantly, and in a now-viral Facebook post, she shared the amazing story of how she was able to help a passenger soothe her crying baby - by breastfeeding the infant.

'Yesterday, I was scheduled for a check flight to be qualified as a Cabin Crew Evaluator', her post begins, 'I thought that this flight’s gonna be so special as this is a big step on my flying career'.

As it turns out Organo was more than right about the flight being special. After taking off she heard a crying infant which made her spring into action.


Her Facebook post explains how she approached the mother and asked how she was, and also said it would be fine to feed her hungry child.

Organo quickly realised that there was no formula milk on the plane, and so without recourse she did the only thing she could; offered to breastfeed the baby herself.

She asked permission from her superior officer, Sheryl Villaflor, and the baby's mother to feed the baby.

In an interview with Smart Parenting, Organo revealed that the mother in question had been in the airport since 9 pm on November 5, 2018, while the flight left at 5:10 am the next morning. She was flying with her baby, who was less than a month old.

Organo, who is a mother herself, expresses that she could see the relief in the woman's eyes. She continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep, and then escorted the mother and infant back to their seat.
