A not-for-profit initiative to ensure that sick preterm babies get the ideal nutrition from human breast milk instead of formula feeds at Arpan.
For a baby, mother’s milk is the best source of nutrition while growing up. In case of premature babies, oftentimes, mother’s milk is not available in as much volume as required. In such cases, formula feeds are the only alternatives for the babies which are not ideal for them.
After serving hundreds of sick term & preterm babies for decades, Arpan Newborn Care Centre has taken the initiative to provide sick neonatal babies the best nutrition in the form of donated human breast milk.
The Breast Milk Bank at “Arpan Violet” is an expertly set up facility where mothers with excess breast milk can voluntarily express and donate it for sick babies. This initiative will exclusively serve babies being treated at Arpan who are not able to get their mother’s milk.
