Hospital opens breast milk bank14th May 2008
The Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital has launched a new scheme where it is accepting donations of breast milk to help premature babies.
The milk, to be donated by new mothers who are back home in the community, will be tested for bacteria, pasteurised, then screened again before being stored in a freezer and then made available for mums who are unable to breastfeed.
It will provide vital nutrition for sick or premature babies. Mothers taking part must be non-smokers, drug free and will be given blood tests before donations can be accepted.

I appreciate their work. The mothers who gives birth to premature babies can't produce enough or any milk.
