Breast milk is a precious resource that provides unparalleled nutrition and essential antibodies crucial for the health and development of newborns.

The Mother’s Breast Milk Bank ATM, located at Sri Ramakrishna Rural Health Center, Pachapalayam, provides 24/7 convenient and secure platform for lactating mothers to donate excess breast milk, contributing to the well-being of vulnerable newborns. This not only supports premature and critically ill babies but also contributes to overall community health by promoting breastfeeding and its associated benefits. This Mother’s Milk Bank ATM at Sri Ramakrishna Rural Center, Pachapalayam, aims to bridge the gap for infants who, for various reasons, are unable to access an adequate supply of their mother’s milk.

The Milk Bank ATM offers a seamless process for both donors and recipients, ensuring adherence to stringent safety and quality standards. Donors can easily donate their breast milk at the ATM, from there it will reach the Milk Bank Nectar of Life at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, Coimbatore which was established in the year 2021, where it will undergo rigorous screening and pasteurization procedures to guarantee its safety and nutritional integrity. From there, breast milk is distributed at free of cost to needed mothers, babies and hospitals.
