With You in the NICU
Ep. 1 - Importance of Human Milk: With You in the NICU Episode One
Mamas who spend time in the NICU know there is an intense focus on collecting and providing breastmilk for infant patients. On this episode of With You in the NICU, host (and former pumper) Jenna Morton talks with Dr. Rebecca Hoban about why human milk is so important for preemies and other NICU patients, as well as tackling some of the challenges moms face in producing and pumping. Dr. Rebecca Hoban is a neonatologist and Assistant Professor of Paediatrics at the University of Toronto. She is the Director of Breastfeeding Medicine at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children.
