San Jose Mothers Milk Bank

A nonprofit organization

24 donors

For over 42 years, Mothers’ Milk Bank has been helping save babies’ lives by connecting them with nourishing human breast milk. 

Breast milk.  Nothing is better for a baby.  And if mothers cannot provide that, donor milk is the next best thing. We want every mother to nurse her baby, and have the support to successfully do so, but sometimes it may not always work out. Mothers’ Milk Bank connects lactating mothers willing to donate their milk to infants and children who need it to survive - and thrive.

Physicians and families recognize that breast milk not only helps babies get the best nutrition but that it also provides immunological properties that protect the infant from infections.  Breast milk provides the best nourishment for optimal growth and development for infants. 

“…Kasi has been receiving regular shipments of breast milk since he was brought home at 2 weeks of age.  Although Kasi had been undernourished in the first week of life, thanks to the donor milk and other support, Kasi has been growing steadily and is a happy and healthy baby boy.”

Your donation supports success stories like Kasi’s.  It also supports the only non-profit milk bank in California, that meticulously screens, and tests pasteurized donor milk and gets it to babies who need it most, when they need it most. And the demand has never been higher for this precious life-saving gift.

If you are interested in becoming a milk donor, please contact the friendly staff at Mothers Milk Bank and they will help you get started in this life-changing experience.
