Milk Sharing and Milk Banking: A Gallop Through History

Time-frame: 60
CERP: yes

This workshop covers the history of milk sharing, wet nursing, milk banking, and the medicalization of birth and infant feeding. We will also look at human milk banking today – the differences between hospital-based and independent milk banks, uses of banked milk, and an overview of the process of screening donors and processing milk.

Rich and Creamy for Our Preemie

Having a child in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is difficult. It is important for every family member to be included. As children and their families read and color this book, they will learn how the NICU, other moms, and local milk banks support breastfeeding and work to make the newest family member grow healthy and strong.
