In episode 13 of the Mother in Me Podcast, I wrote about the process of milk banking for both recipients and donors. Â If you remember, I wrote a post about it hereÂ after I toured The Mother’s Milk Bank of Colorado.
Donor milk literally saves baby’s lives, so if you are able, please donate to this cause. Â It’s an unquantifiable gift to the donor too!
One ounce of human milk can feed an infant in neonatal intensive care for a full day!
It’s a very safe process for both the recipient and donor. Â The milk is held to high standards and is processed it a way that kills all microbes and bacteria without altering the nutritional value and benefits of breastmilk.
