Another first for Utah

Human milk for human babies has long been realized to be the best but sometimes the mother cannot provide it.  Donated milk is the next best thing to mother's own.  Until now, women in Utah who donated their frozen milk had to ship it to the Denver human milk bank at their own expense.

Now they can donate locally and the University Redwood Clinic will store and ship it. Read the story in the Salt Lake Tribune

The University of Utah has opened the state’s first human-milk donation site, where women will be able to provide breast milk to infants in need.  This is a wonderful development to help insure the best milk for babies who cannot get it from their own mothers.  Hopefully we will soon get our own milk bank here in Utah.
