Thanks for wanting to donate breast milk.
Thousands of babies in Australia are born early every year — due dates aren’t always spot on! When they’re born just a little bit sooner than expected, it’s usually just an early (and exciting) surprise. But, when they’re born particularly early, they can face some unique and serious health challenges.
Breast milk may reduce the risks of those health challenges because it’s easier to digest than formula, protects the gut and improves feed tolerance.
The problem? Some mums with premature bubs can’t supply enough breast milk for their own baby because their bodies aren’t ready, especially since their baby can’t feed directly from the breast just yet. That means some of the most vulnerable babies don’t have access to breast milk.
That’s where you come in.
