Mountain Midwifery Center in Englewood is opening a human milk donation and outreach center, joining the national network of Mothers' Milk Bank.
Mountain Midwifery will safely collect and transport all milk donations to the Arvada facility, where it will be pasteurized, analyzed and distributed to babies. Most of the milk recipients are born prematurely or are fragile for other reasons and in neonatal intensive care units. At times, mothers cannot supply any or enough milk for their infants and donor human milk is the “magic sauce” to help them survive and thrive.
November is National Prematurity Awareness Month, recognizing the serious and costly concerns surrounding the one in 10 babies who are born too early in the United States every year.
“Mountain Midwifery Center is nationally recognized for superior newborn outcomes, especially in the area of breastfeeding support,” Joel Ryan, chief executive officer at Mountain Midwifery Center, said in a news release. “To make our support more complete, MMC's team is now proud to be a donation and outreach center, the first in Englewood, to support the enrollment of new milk donors. Our team of midwives and lactation consultants truly enjoys working with Mothers' Milk Bank and Colorado's breastfeeding families.”
Mountain Midwifery Center is at 3535 S. Lafayette St., Suite 100, Englewood. Donation screening forms and other information can be found at www.milkbankcolorado.org or call 303-869-1888.
