Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Our mission is "to improve the health of those we serve." This mission includes even the smallest members of our community, preterm infants. In a 2005 policy statement, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) states "when direct breastfeeding is not possible, expressed human milk should be provided (pg. 498)." The strength of the AAP position created the expectation that human donor milk would become standard nutrition for all preterm infants for whom mother's own milk is not an option. As a response to this community need and in keeping with our mission, the Mothers' Milk Bank of Ohio (MMBO) was opened. The MMBO has grown from a milk depot into a fully operational human donor milk bank. It pasteurizes, dispenses and stores the community's donor breast milk to insure all area infants' equal access to optimal nutrition. In addition, the Bank serves as a major educational center for breast milk information, research and milk bank development. Partnerships have been formed with healthcare professionals in Ohio and in several other states and countries. Our institution is committed to providing funding for the management and operation of the milk bank. This commitment has facilitated the routine use of human donor milk in the Neonatal Special Care Unit of our hospital as well as in neonatal units in other hospitals throughout Ohio. In 2005, MMBO pasteurized 46,249 ounces of human donor milk. It is our privilege to be able to reach out to the youngest members of our community to reduce mortality and improve their physical and neurological development.
