As we are aware, that human milk donation is a noble cause and the milk donated is precious. The donated breast milk fulfills an important role in the preservation of newborn life and it is used for premature babies who are admitted in hospital. Research has shown improved outcome and survival, when donor breast milk is used preferentially over formula feeds in the extreme premature or growth restricted babies, where the mother is not able to supply her own breast milk. Although primarily this milk is used for babies in NICU and it will be supplied to other hospitals as well, as this is the first and only breast milk bank in Delhi/NCR.
