Due to an unexpectedly high number of premature and sick babies being born at Kingston Hospital, their breast milk bank is running low and they need help replenishing it. Breast milk donors necessarily have to be
- a woman
- with a baby under six months old
- a non-smoker and drug-free
- teetotal or drinking less than two units of alcohol a week
Ideally, donors would give a minimum of one litre of breast milk to the bank, which is then tested and pasteurised before being given to a premature or sick baby who badly needs it. If you can do it, please donate: more information on breast milk banks and donating can be found on the Born Too Soon website.
