Sharp Mary Birch Virtual Donor Breastmilk Drive
Did you know that just 3 ounces of donor breastmilk can provide up to 12 feedings for a premature baby? Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns invites you to donate your excess breastmilk and support our tiniest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patients.
After the success of last year’s virtual drive, we are hosting the milk drive virtually again, but opening the donation period over 3 weeks. This process allows you to donate breast milk to support the NICU from the comfort of your home!
