donated breast milk
Working in partnership with the Human Milk Foundation, Norfolk Blood Bikes we work tirelessly to transport urgently required breast milk for the benefit of sick or premature babies and mothers unable to breastfeed.
Before the East Anglian milk hub was set up, we rotated between using three milk banks: The Rosie Hospital at Addenbrookes in Cambridge, The Queen Charlotte Hospital in Chelsea and the Hearts Milk Bank in Welwyn Garden City.
As we had to travel greater distances to get to these milk banks it meant that it would take longer to deliver the urgently required breast milk to hospitals
This was an issue both we and The Human Milk Foundation wanted to address. Because of this a regional Milk Bank hub was established at Hellesdon Hospital. It was the first of its kind in East Anglia and the only the second such hub in the UK.
This regional milk bank hub provides a storage location for screened donor breast milk, reducing our time-frame for urgent deliveries.
