Miles of Smiles donation to Aspirus Medford benefits babies born with a cleft lip or palate

Miles of Smiles donation to Aspirus Medford Hospital

Students from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point School of Communication Sciences & Disorders recently donated a cleft feeding kit for the benefit of babies born at the Aspirus Birthing Center in Medford.   

Miles of Smiles club members Makani Peters, Breanna Wolter and Hayley Bird solicited donations of special bottles for feeding babies born with a cleft lip or palate. Informational handouts, crocheted hats and handmade cards complete the kit.

The kit provides maternity nurses and lactation consultants easy access to special bottles and the educational materials needed to help new parents successfully feed a baby born with a cleft lip or palate.

Aspirus Medford was one of a dozen rural hospitals receiving such a donation.
