Donor Profile - Niesa

"I was a surrogate mother to a beautiful little girl (pictured) who now lives overseas. She stayed with her parents here to have milk for the first five weeks before the family flew home. I continued to pump in order to donate and have now been pumping for six months.

It's something that I've taken great pride in, being able to help these little ones. I feel like it's been a simple way to help and will continue to do so. I've made it my own little mission to 'feed all the babies!'. It's been a blessing to see the relief and joy in mothers when they get milk for their babies, and I know I'm helping the most fragile of them when I give to NorthernStar."

Niesa was very aware of how breast milk benefits babies, both full term and premature. Her dedication is inspiring.
