In episode 13 of the Mother in Me Podcast, I wrote about the process of milk banking for both recipients and donors. If you remember, I wrote a post about it here 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. 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. 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.
