Mother’s milk bank for pre-term babies
OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma has one of the highest rates of pre-term births in the country.
Of course, these pre-term babies are fragile and often face medical complications.
One factor that can reduce medical risks is providing these preemies with human milk.
When the mother can’t provide it there is now a new, life-saving option.
Attorney and mother Ann Darnell-Gillingham talked with us about the opening of the state’s first Mother’s Milk Banks.
The mother’s milk bank is having an open house Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at their new space with the Oklahoma Blood Institutes’ new building at 901 N. Lincoln Blvd.
