In 2007 the Director of Clinical Operations at The Milk Bank began to investigate whether or a not a mother that had experienced a loss found a healing benefit (physical, emotional, spiritual, etc.) from pumping and donating her milk in memory of her lost child. Resoundingly, mothers felt that the donation was certainly beneficial. As our Bereavement Program was developing in 2008 the decision was made to honor the infant of the first bereavement donor we worked with back in 2005, Garrett.
Our Bereavement Program strives to provide families that have experienced a loss the chance to donate milk in honor of their little one. Each leaf on our tree has the name of a baby whose family has donated milk in the hopes of saving another life.
Donate to help provide resources to our bereavement mothers who give the gift of life during their loss.
Make a one-time donation or a monthly
