Recently I sat down with Jannette Festival, a Registered Nurse, Lactation Consultant and co-founder of NothernStar Milk Bank in Calgary.

NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank is Canada’s only community-based milk bank. As a charitable organization, NorthernStar screens breastfeeding mothers as milk donors, accepting their excess milk as donations to be pasteurized in the laboratory and dispensed to sick babies in hospitals and in the community. Their belief which science endorses is that donor human milk is the best option for any baby and that all babies should have access to the life-saving nutrients of donor human milk. As advocates and champions for healthy babies, their goal is to connect donor human milk with as many sick and fragile babies as possible.
