💙We can finally announce our new arrival! 💙 Me and baby are doing well, labour went pretty smoothly definitely not as I had planned but the most amazing experience of my life. I loved every minute of it, I couldn't of done any of it without the love and support of my best friend and team mate, plus both of our mums. Having them both there for us made the whole experience all the more special and memorable, with plenty of laughs and a few tears we all welcomed our little miracle into the world after a long night at 3:38am on the 28th September. He weighed 7lb 5oz and is an absolute dream 🥰 💙💚 Jasper George Thomas Prince 💚💙 #wedidit #newmummy #newest #teammate #newborn #tinyfeet #daddysontime #tinybaby #babyboy #worththewait #greatestadventure #firstweek #bestjobever #firsttimemum #newarrival #iloveyou #babybear #motherslove #happyplace

「親として子供に生きることを教えたいと思っているけれど、実際は教わることばかり」と感じているそうだ。

 

そして1月10日、息子とパートナーと共に訪れたウィーンの動物園で、1匹のオランウータンと出会った。

 

守るように寄り添ったオランウータン

 

1日が終わりかけた時、オランウータンをできるだけ近くで見られるようにガラスの前に腰かけたジェマさん。すると、思いがけない出来事が起こった。1.5~2メートルほど離れた位置にいた1匹のメスのオランウータンが、2人に近づいてきて真横に座ったのだ。

After the reaction I've had to this video of me and my son feeding with the support and protection of Sol, the female orangutan in Schonbrünn Zoo, Vienna. I have decided to use this opportunity to try to make a difference. 🧡 🌏 The post and video have reached over 5million people in countries across the globe. This made me think that if I'd managed to raise just $1 per view or share I'd of raised over $5million dollars to help support and protect these animals the way Sol protected me whilst I fed my little boy. 🌏 🧡 I've contacted an orangutan rescue, rehabilitation and release programme in Borneo and I am currently awaiting a response to see how to go about raising funds to help them with their project. . I feel that during my life time the only choices I've had are captivity or extinction… neither of which I like so I'm hoping that now I've been given a platform such as this I can make a difference for my little boy and others of his generation. To hopefully put a stop to the destruction of the forests and the sheer horror of poaching so that the next generations choices include the freedom of these majestic animals. 💕 . . #spirituallybonded #breastfeeding #boobiebaby #orangutans #🧡 #schönbrunnzoo #vienna #austria #breastfeedinginpublic #viralhog #mumandbaby #ourjourney #specialmoments #bestdayever #letsdosomegood #makeachange #giveback #freedomforall #rescue #rehabilitation #release #raisingawareness #endextinction #changetheworld

母親の顔と子どもの顔を交互に見つめ、子どもなでるようにガラスを指でなぞりはじめたオランウータン。お腹の空いた息子がぐずりだしてしまったときにも、優しい視線を2人に向けたままだった。

 

ジェマさんは周囲が静かだったこともあり、その場で授乳をすることに。その間も、オランウータンは母子のそばに座っていたという。30分ほど寄り添ってくれたその姿に、ジェマさんは「まるで私を応援するよう、守るようだった」と感じたという。

Today I got feeding support from the most unlikely of places, the most surreal moment of my life that had me in tears. I visited schoenbrunn zoo in vienna whilst on a mini break with my partner and son, we nipped in to see the orangutans at the end of our day who were happily playing in the enclosure so I went to the window for a closer look and sat down by the window so my lb could see the orangutan who was roughly 5/6ft away. She then got up, carried a piece of cloth to the window and sat down with me. She looked directly into my eyes then placed her hand up as if to touch my son I was in awe of this beautiful creature already. My son wanted feeding and as it was quiet I fed him whilst I sat there, the way the orangutan reacted took my breath away she kept looking at me, then my son then back again. She sat with me for approximately half an hour, kept stroking the glass and lay down next to me as if to support and protect me. I had to share this because my mind was blown, we may be a species apart but breastfeeding connected us today in a once in a lifetime moment that will stay with me forever. I'm also incredibly lucky that my partner caught all of this on video 💕 . . #breastfeedingawareness #nature #orangutans #naturalinstincts #breastfeeding #together #support #mummylife #onceinalifetime #surreal #inawe #vienna #austria #zoo #conservation #specialmoments #viral #normalisebreastfeeding #schönbrunnzoo #breathtaking #travel #tripofalifetime #nothingelselikeit #breastfeedinginpublic #ourjourney

その間に周囲には人が集まってきたが、とても静かにこの瞬間を見守ってくれたのだという。

 

「授乳を当たり前の光景に」

 

感動したジェマさんは、この動画や画像をFacebookやInstagram上に投稿。すると、「なんて美しい瞬間なんだ」「泣けてきた」「これ好き」などの声が投稿された。

 

さらには、「授乳を当たり前の光景に」というジェマさんの考えに賛同する声も寄せられている。(了)
