Breast milk donation fulfills an important role in keeping babies healthy and thriving. We distribute the milk directly to the families and infants that need it the most! By making the decision to donate your breast milk, you can save a life.

Donating your breast milk is easy.

Call our toll free number, 1-877-375-6645, for a quick telephone interview. Our nurses and Spanish speaking Lactation Educator will provide the packet of forms and answer any questions. Once they receive the completed paperwork, they will send you to get a free blood test.

Shipping your milk to us is free. We will provide a free shipping unit to your home to collect all the milk you are interested in donating. We accept frozen breast milk expressed prior to the screening as long as it has not been frozen for over 6 months. More shipping containers can be sent throughout your lactation period. We always have babies in need.
