SERV Norfolk

Donated Breast Milk Service

We’ve made the ‘too difficult’ easy and practical.

We collect from mothers & deliver to the Milk Bank at The Rosie Hospital.

We collect from The Rosie Hospital and deliver to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (N.I.C.U.) at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.

More babies now have access to donated breast milk.

Email dbm@servnorfolk.org.uk for more information.  (Run by volunteers, emails checked every few days)
