Providence Medford Medical Center has opened a Milk Drop for breastfeeding mothers who wish to donate surplus breast milk to a regional milk bank.
In its first day of operations, the drop site collected approximately 650 ounces of breast milk, which is enough to feed one baby for more than a month. More than 600 ounces of that milk was donated by a Providence nurse, Siri Swanson.
Women interested in becoming a milk donor should call the milk bank at 503-469-0955.
