Show Notes:

Have you ever thought about sharing the extra milk in your freezer? Or found yourself scoping one of the online milk sharing groups when you’ve come face-to-face with supplementation?

During this episode, Heather and Maureen dive into Community Milk Sharing.  Direct parent-to-parent sharing of human milk carries a lot of stigma in the medical community, and we don’t see a lot of guidance for parents on how to do this safely. This week the Milk Minute reviews medical and ethical concerns, practical tips, donor interviews, milk pasteurization, and more!
