Door County mothers with breast milk to give will not have to drive to Green Bay to make sure it still goes to good use. Door County Medical Center and Mother’s Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes have joined forces to open the breast milk depot inside its Women’s Center. The depot will collect the breast milk to screen and pasteurize before it gets distributed to babies at Door County Medical Center and other partner hospitals across the region. Registered Nurse and lactation consultant Jessica Skinner has worked on bringing the program to Door County Medical Center since earlier this year. She is thrilled it is becoming a reality.
The breast milk depot opens at Door County Medical Center on November 20th.
