Iceland to Import Danish Breast Milk

Landspítali National University Hospital has decided to import breast milk from Denmark for infants born prematurely, Kjarninn reports.

When the mother’s milk is not available, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends breast milk from so-called breast milk banks. There has been an increase in breast milk banks around the world and Iceland is the only Nordic nation not to have its own.

Around 200 babies are born prematurely in Iceland each year.
