The first thing you need to do is contact us! We want to meet you! You will receive a phone call and/or email from us shortly with a pre-screening for you to fill out. We want to make sure there is nothing major that would make you ineligible to donate before we have you fill out our official application.
If your pre-screening looks good, we will email you our official application. Fill it out! You will receive an email response from us within 24 hours. We’ll let you know if we have any questions for you. If we do, answer them! The sooner you respond to us, the sooner you can get your freezer space back!?
If everything on your application is A-Okay, we will send you an email letting you know that your donor kit has been sent out. This email will also have two medical consent forms attached for your doctors to fill out. Please print, sign and return the consent forms to us via email, fax, or snail mail. If you already have an appointment with your doctors, please feel free to take them with you! If not, we would be happy to forward them on to your doctors for you. Just let us know!
When you receive your kit in the mail, open it! There will be complete instructions inside. Here’s what you need to do:
Once we receive your completed consent forms, DNA swabs, and results of your blood test, you are qualified to donate your milk through NMB! Yay! We’ll send you an email letting you know you’re qualified. We will also ask how many ounces you have to send at that point and if you need extra storage bags for future donations.
Once you receive your cooler, open it up! There will be packaging instructions included, but here are some pointers:
We will email you to let you know when your cooler arrives safely at our lab the following day ?
