The mission of Mid-Atlantic Mothers’ Milk Bank is to improve the health and survival of medically vulnerable infants and young children through the safe collection, pasteurization, and provision of donor human milk.

In this stressful time of the national formula shortage, our milk bank continues to focus on these populations. If you are the parent or healthcare provider of a child with a medical need for donor milk, learn more about how to order human donor milk.

Lactating people with extra milk are encouraged to consider donating to supply the hospitals and outpatient babies who are having an increased need.

Here are some additional resources that may help.

All babies benefit from human milk. But for medically vulnerable infants, human milk is even more critical. It can be life saving. When a mother’s own milk isn’t available, the next best option is pasteurized milk from carefully screened donors. We are dedicated to providing safe human milk to all babies in need.

Mid-Atlantic Mothers’ Milk Bank is a non-profit milk bank that is proud to be part of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America, the experts in human milk banking for more than 30 years.
