CDO to open human milk bank in 2022

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–From advocating health and wellness for women and mothers, Cagayan de Oro City Nutrition Committee (CNC) has now introduced the upcoming establishment of a human health bank in the city, which will be facilitated in J.R. Borja General Hospital (JRBGH), adding to the existing milk bank in Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC).

“So by 2022, gipaningkamutan sa Cagayan de Oro City nga ma-establish na gyod ang Human Milk Bank. As of now, ongoing pa ang processing, nagbuhat pa sa building, magpalit pa sa mga equipment para sa human milk bank,” said Caroline Cabunoc, Breastfeeding, and Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) coordinator of CNC said during the Talakayan sa PIA, March 31.

(So by 2022, Cagayan de Oro City worked hard to finally establish a Human Milk Bank. As of now, the process is still ongoing: construction of the building and the purchasing of equipment for the Human Milk Bank)

In the establishment of the Human Milk Bank, Cabunoc still discourages mothers to depend on milk donations, but to instead practice exclusive nursing or breastfeeding especially when no health concerns are experienced by a mother.

“Wala nato gina-encourage atong mga ginikanan nga mangayo og human milk sa atong milk bank. Ato gyud silang gina-encourage nga sila jud mismo ang muhatag og milk, sila ang magpadede sa ilang anak kay mas maayo man gyud to kay kung constant ang pagkuha sa milk sa breast sa mama, the more milk it will produce. Dapat ikaw nga ginikanan if wala ka’y ginabati, walay mga kakulian, ikaw gyud among gina-encourage nga ikaw mismo ang magpatotoy,” Cabunoc said.

(We are not encouraging mothers to ask for human milk in the milk bank. We are encouraging them to nurse their babies, practice exclusive breastfeeding with them because in constant breastfeeding, more milk will be produced. If you are healthy and do not experience any complications in lactating, we encourage you to practice exclusive breastfeeding)

The realization of the human milk bank in CDO was made possible by the CNC and its working committee, including Dr. Stephanie Denise R. Alagadan, who heads the Department of Pediatrics at J.R. Borja General Hospital, consultant Dr. Jessamine Sareno of Maria Reyna Xavier University Hospital, and the City Health Office (CHO) that will train health personnels in collecting milk and how to incubate it, to ensure supply of donated human milk.

Right now, aside from the human milk bank, CNC’s prenatal services are persistent, which are provided for free in 54 health centers. It includes nutrition programs, iron and calcium supplementations, counseling for pregnancy related concerns, and breastfeeding support groups.

To further respond to the needs of women, lying-in clinics established, priority lanes for COVID-19 vaccinations are provided to mothers in their third month of pregnancy and to lactating mothers. There are also family planning services, and breastfeeding rooms and adolescent-friendly corners in health facilities. (RLT/PIA-10)
