The video follows Cynthia and Ian Lau, both physicians, on their emotional journey after the premature birth of their daughter, Lucy. Delivered at 23 weeks in a remote part of Canada, Lucy was flown from Manitoba to the closest NICU two hours away, in Winnipeg.
In the NICU, Lucy’s care team talked to Cynthia about fortifying her breast milk, she said, “with a commonly-used product called Human Milk Fortifier, which is actually a bovine or cow’s milk protein.” “When I started discussing with one of the nurses about her thoughts on this, she talked about Prolacta’s fortifier as a possible alternative.
I was absolutely excited and fascinated that Prolacta offered a concentrated human breast milk product.” The Laus advocated for Prolacta’s 100 percent human milk-based fortifier instead of one made with cow milk, and Lucy was given Prolact+ H2MF®. She is now a healthy, active toddler, who loves to eat and is on the right growth trajectory, according to the Laus.
