You Can’t Mimic the Magic

The Milk Bank has the unique ability to provide families in our communities with a readily available source of safe donor milk.

Quick access to donor milk gives parents peace of mind. The Milk Bank provides safe donor milk as a medical treatment, to bridge a gap or to help meet breastfeeding goals.

Why is there a processing fee for donated milk?

The processing fee covers the cost of donor screening, nutritional analysis, pasteurization, microbiological testing, and cold storage.  These steps ensure donor milk is safe for the most fragile babies.  The Milk Bank primarily serves NICU babies in the hospital.

Like other tissue banks, milk banks have many layers of safety before milk reaches tiny tummies. Keep reading below to learn more about our safety standards.

The Milk Bank has a sliding-scale Medical Relief Fund so that our processing fee doesn’t prevent families from getting the help they need.

Safety Protocols

milk process

The Milk Bank follows strict screening, processing, and dispensing guidelines established by the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) to ensure the safety of pasteurized donor human milk.

These guidelines have been established with the advisement of the Centers for Disease Control, the Food and Drug Administration, and the blood and tissue industries.

Potential donors provide complete medical and lifestyle histories, and undergo blood tests similar to the screening process used at blood banks.

Donated milk is pasteurized to kill any bacteria or viruses. Before the pasteurized milk is dispensed, bacteriological testing is done by an independent lab to ensure its safety.
