Kya – A Donor From Our Newest Depot

I gave birth to my daughter Kya in April. She was born at 37 weeks and struggled with hypoglycemia during our hospital stay. In order to help get her blood sugars up; I would nurse her, pump, and offer her a bottle. Once my milk came in, I had over supply. I didn’t know about milk donation until one day, while checking my work email- I saw UPMC-Altoona opened a drop off location for this milk bank. I am an employee for UPMC at another location. I then reached out, went through the screening process, and became a donor. It was very easy to apply and the process went smoothly. I am so incredibly blessed to be able to donate and am humbled by this experience.
