Caring Causes: Mothers' Milk Bank

The nonprofit Mothers’ Milk Bank, along with HMBANA (Human Milk Banking Association of America) celebrates the tremedous efforts of all its volunteer donors today on, World Day of Human Milk Donation, a true international effort! These donor efforts provide breast milk to help feed premature and critically ill infants in neonatal intensive care.

Mothers' Milk Bank is a leader in the nonprofit space of collecting donor human milk. 
Mothers’ Milk Bank screens healthy lactating women as potential donors using a specialized clinical review for infants and human milk. Moms who are currently breastfeeding and have extra supplies of breast milk in their freezer are encouraged to donate. Once the milk is accepted by the Milk Bank, it undergoes testing for bacteria and is processed using a special pasteurization method that eliminates bacteria while maintaining most of the health benefits of the milk.
The nonprofit Mothers’ Milk Bank is supported by donors from many states who ship milk to the facility where it is tested and pasteurized for the most vulnerable infants. Most moms who are eligible to donate blood are also eligible to donate milk.
