Massachusetts is the proud new parent of a donor milk bank: Mothers' Milk Bank of New England. Yes, we have our very own now. I recently attended the official opening and interviewed the key players in attendance. Over the next few blogs I'll introduce you to some of the people that are making this newest 'baby' on the block possible.

Why a milk bank?

- Premature babies are more susceptible to serious, long term illnesses--human milk can lessen or prevent these.
- Sometimes mothers of these infants are unable to provide enough milk for their them.
- Breastfeeding women who are able to express extra milk make regular donations of their milk to these banks.
- Human milk is the gift that often means the difference between life and death for these tiny babies.
