All babies deserve access to the best nutrition possible. For very low birthweight babies, breast milk is not just the best nutritional source, it is a medical necessity. However, not all mothers are able to breastfeed. Human Milk Banks provide a valuable service to ensure that the most  vulnerable infants have access to human milk to help them develop, heal and thrive when mother’s own milk is not available or not enough to feed her baby.
