Best Start for Preterm Babies: Human Breastmilk

Time-frame: 60-90 minutes
CERP: yes

Human milk is the healthiest choice for human babies. When a baby is born early, they need this optimal nutrition even more. This session will outline the potential options for human milk if mother’s own breastmilk is not available. The session will differentiate between the types of human milk banks. The research on why human milk is so critical for preterm babies will be explored. Finally, the processes of donating human milk and obtaining human milk will be presented.
