Use of Human Donor Milk in Maryland

The Maryland Breastfeeding Coalition (MBC) has been contacted in recent months with questions regarding use of human donor milk in the NICU setting and in the community. We encourage you to attend the Maryland Coalition of Lactation Consultants meeting on March 26, 2019 to hear Naomi Bar-Yam, Past President of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America. Then plan on joining us for our next MBC meeting on May 8, 2019 to share your story, your concerns, and your questions about the use of human donor milk in Maryland. Help us decide how we can best address these issues as a Coalition. Contact the MBC if you have information to share but cannot join us in person on May 8.
