About Mothers’ Milk Bank
Mothers’ Milk Bank (www.mothersmilk.org) is a nonprofit organization with a mission of enhancing the availability and use of breast milk for all babies in need. Mothers’ Milk Bank (MMB) collects breast milk from healthy, nursing mothers who have a surplus. Every milk donor is screened, and their milk is tested and pasteurized. Donor human milk is primarily dispensed to premature and fragile infants without access to their mother’s own milk. Often, mothers of premature infants cannot provide their own milk for a variety of reasons, including premature delivery, illness, or medication use. The use of human milk has been proven to give these fragile babies a better chance of survival while decreasing complications. For some babies, donor human milk is truly lifesaving.
