Solving Feeding Challenges
in a clinical setting
At Medolac, we live to develop nutritional products that solve problems. The core problem that we came together to solve is that although mother's milk is best for infants - sometimes it is not available. Families and healthcare providers around the world go to great lengths to find safe and reliable sources of donor human milk, but have faced many challenges.
The immediate need. If you have ever set foot in a neonatal intensive care unit you will understand why safety is central to all that we do at Medolac. So as we designed solutions to provide a large-scale supply of human milk, we knew that we would only develop products with the highest safety profile possible.
Infants at home
need donor milk too
The human milk industry is a rapidly growing space, with new and exciting research being published daily on the incredible benefits of human milk. It is widely accepted that human milk is best for every baby, and it can be life saving for the smallest, sickest infants - preemies. However, donor milk products are priced so high that many infants cannot access it.
This is why Medolac developed human milk products that are easier to use, more affordable, with the highest possible level of safety. Learn more about why we believe that commercially-sterile donor milk should be the standard in the NICU.
