St. Bernards Women and Children's Human Milk Depot
In addition to having the only Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Eastern Arkansas, we now have the very first human milk collection site affiliated with Mothers' Milk Bank of North Texas in Jonesboro.
Human breast milk is very important to the development and health of premature and sick babies but cannot always be supplied by the mother. It helps our NICU babies have a lower risk for fatal conditions, spend less time in the hospital, and have lower infection rates.
The freezer that will house the donated milk is dedicated in memory of Kayla Grace Dunnam, the late daughter of one of our very own NICU nurses, Sierra Dunnam.
If you are interested in becoming a breastmilk donor, you can email email@example.com or call 870.207.0421.
