Healthy Babies UK have a depot donor milk bank in Tiverton. This will give South West parents, hospitals and couriers greater options and access to donor milk.
Why is there a need for a depot donor milk bank?
inDonor breast milk is used for pre-term and neonatal units. Human breast milk is a complex, living fluid that is more than simply nutrition. Donor breast milk is often crucially needed short term.
HBUK are in a partnership to act as a depot centre so pre and pasteurised milk can be stored on site enabling improved availability and access to deliver milk to Devon & Cornwall; something which is not currently routine. In order to do this we need to raise money for medical equipment/setup costs.
