Prolacta Donor Milk Program

<h2>Help Premature&nbsp;Babies in the NICU</h2>

<ul>
<li>Do you have extra breast milk?</li>
<li>Are you and your baby healthy?</li>
<li>Do you want to help a premature baby get a healthier start in life?</li>
</ul>

<h2>Your Extra Breast Milk Can Make a Difference to Premature Infants</h2>

<p>Milk donated through Prolacta will ensure Centra can provide the specialized nutritional care these fragile babies need! The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends the use&nbsp;of human milk – mother’s own or pasteurized donor milk if mom’s own milk is not available – for all preterm infants.<sup>1</sup> Centra is working with Prolacta Bioscience® to provide 100% human milk nutritional products to babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Through this program, mothers from the community can select a Prolacta-affiliated milk bank that best meets their needs. Prolacta offers a network of milk banks where the donor either receives direct compensation for her milk donation or opts to have a charitable contribution made on her behalf.</p>

<h2>Prolacta-Affiliated Donor Milk Banks Provide:</h2>

<p>• Free donor testing<br />
• Free breast milk storage bags<br />
• Free shipping</p>

<h2>We Make It Easy for You</h2>

<p>Donate from the comfort of your own home at no cost to you. After a health screening, mothers receive free supplies for storage and have their excess milk picked up from their homes. The breast milk is sent to Prolacta Bioscience, a for-profit, scientifically-driven company, where it is tested, pasteurized and made into 100% human milk nutritional products that are formulated to meet the needs of critically ill premature infants in the NICU.</p>
