The Milk Bank and Columbus Regional Health are co-hosting one of central Indianas first breast milk donation drives. Women who are currently or have recently finished lactating are encouraged to donate their stored, surplus milk to care for ill and fragile infants across the region.
The drive is Wednesday from 2 to 5:30 p.m. in Cafeteria Dining Room D at CRH. Donors will be asked to fill out a medical history form and complete a quick blood draw to determine the best use of their donated milk.
Ideal candidates for milk donors are non-smoking women in good general health who take limited or no medications and herbal supplements. For clarification on eligibility, contact The Milk Bank at 877.829.7470 or visit themilkbank.org/donate-milk.
