Luci Bain was preparing for the birth of her son Peter like most expectant moms-to-be – buying baby clothes, decorating a nursery and packing bags for the hospital.
Little did she know she would deliver Peter via emergency C-section eight weeks early, and then spend the next four weeks with him in the neonatal intensive care unit and special care nursery unit at Wesley Medical Center.
So when she was later offered the chance to donate breast milk to help other NICU babies, it was an easy decision.
“My answer was absolutely,” Bain said. “Who wouldn’t want to help a baby in need by offering the best nutrition possible?”
Bain became the first donor for the Wesley Milk Donor Program, a new initiative to provide donated breast milk to Wesley’s tiniest patients. And the benefits of breast milk for those patients is significant.
