First public sector breast milk bank in Kolkata inaugurated

A modern and sophisticated breast milk bank, stated to be the first in India in the public sector, was on 07-Aug-2013 inaugurated in Kolkata at the premier state-run Seth Sukhlal Karnani Memorial Hospital(SSKM) hospital by chief minister Mamata Banerjee.

"This is a novel scheme to cater to the basic needs of a child who is just born, but does not get the milk from the mother or when the mother dies after giving birth to the child," Banerjee said, stressing on the importance of breast feeding.
