The challenges of human milk logistics in the NICU

Human milk feeding in the NICU often lacks standardised processes. Protocols for handling human milk vary between institutions and are dependent on regulatory policies and the hospital’s resources. Since the benefits of human milk are so great, Medela strives to develop evidence-based solutions that add consistency and efficiency to the handling of human milk in the NICU.

The following graphic describes the pathway of human milk through the NICU. Medela's human milk logistics portfolio provides solutions to support each of these handling steps.
