Why Donate?

Did you know?

  • A mother’s breast milk donation is the only way a critically ill, premature infant can receive a purely human milk-based fortified diet.
  • Studies have shown that premature infants who were born weighing between 500 and 1250 grams and fed human milk had significantly decreased the odds of developing Necrotizing Entercolitis (NEC).

Why is donor breast milk needed? Your donated breast milk will be purchased by hospitals throughout the United States for use in Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Human breast milk is vital to the health and well-being of all babies, but for babies born premature or critically ill, donated breast milk has the potential to make the difference between a long hospital stay or a quicker recovery. By donating breast milk, you provide critically ill infants with an important chance for survival.
