Donating breast milk to sick babies is a 'privilege'

Wales needs a satellite breast milk bank so hospitals can get it to premature and sick babies faster, a milk bank manager has said.

Wales has 11 neonatal units and is the only UK nation without a milk bank.

Hospitals in Wales rely on the charity Blood Bikes Wales or specialist couriers to deliver breast milk from Chester and Birmingham.

Rachel Warden, 31, from Caerphilly, has donated more than 10 litres of her breast milk to the North West Human Milk Bank in Chester.
