MILK DEPOT FOR MOTHERS & CHILDREN

We are proud to be the home of Richland Center’s first human milk depot that is within reach to so many outerlying communities in the surround areas of Iowa, Sauk, Richland Counties.

The Importance of the Milk Depot

The Importance of our Milk Depot 

Pasteurized donor human milk is an important nutritional therapy for many at-risk Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) babies, as it provides numerous benefits in the absence of the mother’s milk, including infection-fighting factors, active growth and development hormones, improved digestion and ideal nutrition. While The Richland Hospital, Inc. supports breastfeeding whenever possible, donor milk can be used when the mother has a low milk supply, is ill or on certain medications, or in cases of adoption or surrogacy.
