Mother’s milk bank likely to come up at Niloufer Hospital

Hyderabad: Doctors of Niloufer Hospital have decided to start a first of a kind mother’s milk bank at Niloufer Hospital. Speaking on the occasion of a breastfeeding awareness campaign conducted by Youth for Seva and Sushena Health Foundation on Saturday, doctors stressed on the importance of breast milk during the early days to help prevent health complications for newborns.

During the campaign doctors expressed concern that many mothers were facing problems in producing breast milk and were turning to processed milk powder, which would affect the baby’s health.

As reported by DC, doctors announced that mother’s milk bank would be started at Niloufer Hospital, to cater to such families. Doctors said the milk would be stored in safe conditions.
