Human Milk Bank
The Western Trust Milk Bank opened in August 2000. Since then it has helped hundreds of neonatal babies all over Ireland.
In 2019 our milk bank received a total donation of 1229703 ml from 266 donors, supplying milk to 22 neonatal units Ireland wide.
The bank also helps babies with major gut or heart problems by providing milk to their home. Through the generosity of its donors, the milk bank provides very special help for the nation’s most vulnerable babies.
