To the collect mother’s milk, São João Baptista Hospital maintains a partnership with the Fire Brigade, through the Programa Bombeiro Amigo do Peito*. This way, the donor mothers do not have to move to the hospital.

* Bombeiro Amigo do Peito is a program designed to help mothers who are feeding their babies and who want to donate milk but do not have the time or ability to go to a unit or hospital to do so. So firemen go to the mothers’ houses and collect milk.
