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 – expressed within the last 9 months – to support our tiniest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patients.
