Bon Secours begins donor breast milk initiative


Bon Secours Richmond Health System recently launched a donor breast milk initiative at its St. Mary’s Hospital to provide healthy donor human breast milk to high-risk, premature infants whose mothers need assistance with supplementing their own breast milk after giving birth.

According to Denise Smith, nurse manager of the NICU at St. Mary’s (pictured), breast milk plays an important role in improving outcomes for critically ill infants, especially very low birth weight (VLBW) infants. “It has been proven to decrease the risk of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), which is a severe inflammatory bowel condition,” she said.

If a new mother is unable to provide breast milk, donor breast milk can be provided to infants that meet the following criteria after obtaining signed consent: birth weight of 3.3 pounds or less and gestational age of 30 weeks or less. > Read more.
