Mothers who have been screened will be able to drop off their extra breast milk for babies throughout New England who need it. Very premature newborns are in particular need, in part because their mothers may not have started producing milk yet. This is the first collection site in central Maine for Mothers’ Milk Bank. CMMC also hopes to offer donated breast milk to babies in the future. (Sun Journal photo by Daryn Slover) (Sun Journal photo by Daryn Slov
