Why did Palmetto Health partner with Prolacta Bioscience?

The Palmetto Health Donor Milk Program helps neonatal infants by providing them with the breast milk nutrition they need for proper growth and development.

Palmetto Health’s partnership with Prolacta Bioscience provides human milk to our most vulnerable newborns, while also allowing moms who have excess breast milk to donate to support premature babies in the Palmetto Health Neonatal Intensive Care Units.
