The life-saving magic of donor human milk

Mothers' Milk Bank provides critical nutrition to infants by ensuring they have the donor human milk they need to thrive.

For nearly 40 years, Mothers’ Milk Bank has harnessed the incredible power of donor human milk, collecting, processing, and distributing it to babies across the country.

We believe that donor human milk is the first choice for all babies anytime their parents’ own milk is unavailable. This is particularly true for premature babies and those with weakened immune systems, but we also proudly serve adoptive, surrogate, and other outpatient families who want to give their baby the best possible start in life.

As a nonprofit milk bank and member of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA), we rely on generous milk donations from new parents looking to help other families. By sharing their gift of life, these selfless donors help us provide critical nourishment to thousands of babies every year.

Mothers' Milk Bank is one of the largest nonprofit milk banks in North America.
