Cheshire & North Wales Human Milk Bank
Research shows that sick and premature babies can have their chances of survival and long term development substantially improved if fed with breast milk. Milk Banks collect and distribute breast milk to poorly babies.
Could you be a breast milk donor?
If you have decided to breastfeed your baby you will know that breast milk is the ideal food. It is especially important for babies who are sick or premature – like baby Charlotte. Giving these babies breast milk increases their chances of survival and helps their long-term development.
For just a few minutes each day to express off your extra milk will help many babies. The hospital provides sterilised bottles for you to use and collects the milk direct from your home when convenient to you. It’s really that simple!
Every drop really does count, so call today to register as a donor.
