On Wednesday, August 4, 2021, PHFE WIC hosted a live Zoom event with community organizations from San Jose Mother’s Milk Bank, Eisner Health LA, Emanate Health, and Mighty Little Giants.
They shared information about the Milk Banks in the community. Pauline Sakamoto, MS, RN, PHN of San Jose Mother’s Milk Bank presented the history of Milks Banks and the process of donating milk. She shared that participants will go through a simple health screening before they drop off their milks for donation.
Jessica Wade, NS, CLES, Certified Doula, CEO and Founder of Mighty Little Giants shared her own experience receiving donor breast milk with her son. While, Magdalena Estrada, MPH, CHES, IBCLC, LCCE of Eisner Health LA Milk Depot and Annette Benavides, MSN, RNC-OB of San Gabriel Valley Milk Depot introduced their Milk Depot and the Milk Collection Events.
We were so thrilled to learn from all of our speakers and excited for the future of milk banks.
