Breast Milk Depot

Breast Milk Depot at PLHC

Palmer Lutheran Health Center has been chosen to be a breast milk depot by the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA), a multidisciplinary group of health care providers that promotes, protects, and supports donor milk banking.

On March 22, at 1pm, Jean Drulis, the president of HMBANA, is planning to visit our hospital to officially open our drop off site.

PLHC will be the only depot, north of Waterloo. There are 13 total depots in the state. This is a unique service we can offer mothers that are taking the time to donate their precious breastmilk for babies and children in need.
