About NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank – Nourishing Babies
It all started in 2012 when two women recognized a need. “At the time, Alberta did not have a donor human milk bank and milk was flown in from Canada’s only milk bank at BC Women’s & Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. Often milk was not available to the Foothills NICU due to shortages within BC’s own province.”1
Since launching the NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank, the organization has, “experienced outstanding growth, with our donor-base, our milk supply and in our work across Canada. Many milk drops have opened in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba to accommodate the collection of milk from donor mothers in these provinces.”2
NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank – How They Help
Based in Calgary, “NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank is Canada’s only community-based milk bank. Screened, breastfeeding mothers donate their excess breast milk, which NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank pasteurizes and tests. This milk is then dispensed to sick babies in the hospital and at home. This ‘liquid gold’ helps in decreasing the chance of serious gastrointestinal and eye diseases, promotes growth and lowers infection rates in premature and ill babies. These babies are often able to be discharged from the NICU earlier because of this.”3
