  1. Thank you for the work that you do!

    We've been reading a lot about the human donor milk provided by crew members and the shipment that was sent from milk banks in the US. What is happening on board to help mothers lactate/relacate? And what is happening with the milk shipment from the US, last we heard it was being sequestered?

  2. Jodine: I'll check into it and get back to you.
