Although breast milk banks have now cropped up in hospitals but there are only very few mother who are willing to donate their milk. As they want to ensure sufficient milk for their baby first. And it takes more efforts to be a donar too. as they have to take adequate diet to continue the supply, as well as travel the distance to the bank to empty their breasts.
So increasing the mother's accessibility to the bank or transportation facility of the expressed breast milk from home to the bank will only increase the breast milk bank stores for the nicu infants to be fed with breast milk. As a new mom is already overwhelmed with a lot of responsibilities and limited support, so this act of donating becomes tiring for her even if she is willing to. Even some rewards should be provided to donating mothers as a token of encouragement and gratitude. Yes more awareness is to be created about the benefits of donating breast milk.


never heard of this before! thanks :)

very helpful !

So true, premie babies definitely need bm till they achieve a speicific diet. Unfortunately not much of awareness.

I wanted to donate my breast milk and even asked my hospital but they denied...

Akanksha Bajaj(ida_tales) there are very few milk banks in india. Just like stem cell banks. It ll take time to popularize. But i appreciate ur willingness to donate.

Thanks for information dear AMRITA MALLIK
