Find a Milk Bank

Do you have extra breast milk and want to make a difference in the lives of premature babies who have special nutritional needs? Choose a milk bank below and become a breast milk donor.

All milk collected through these Prolacta-affiliated or operated milk banks goes through a rigorous screening process and is formulated into human milk-based nutritional products that are prescribed by doctors.

By offering access to a network of milk banks, Prolacta allows mothers to choose a milk bank with which she feels most comfortable or best meets her needs. Prolacta utilizes this diversity of milk banks to ensure a supply of milk for those infants who need it most.

In addition to helping preemies who are in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Helping Hands Milk Bank support the Susan G Komen Foundation based on the amount of breast milk collected.

Mother’s milk is the ideal nutrition for most infants. It’s especially vital for premature, low birth weight and critically-ill infants. In fact, studies show that a diet of breast milk helps decrease incidences of necrotizing enterocolotis, a potentially fatal disease in critically-ill and preterm infants.

Some mothers find it difficult to express breast milk when they are separated from their babies who are being cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Fortunately, mothers who produce more milk than their own baby needs generously donate their milk to help nourish hospitalized infants. By becoming a donor, you will be providing a vital resource to very small preterm infants at Texas Children’s Hospital, which houses the nation’s largest NICU and cares for nearly 3,000 babies a year.

Texas Children’s partners with Prolacta Bioscience to conduct thorough donor testing and to process and pasteurize all donor milk. Prolacta operates a large, pharmaceutical- grade facility that has the capacity and supply to meet Texas Children’s needs. At Texas Children’s Hospital, donor milk is provided to all babies who need it, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.

Breast milk is best for all babies, but premature babies have increased nutritional needs that cannot be met by a mother's own breast milk alone.

Milk donated through Tiny Treasures Milk Bank will be used by Prolacta Bioscience® to make human milk nutritional products including a human milk-based fortifier, human milk caloric fortifier, human milk based premature infant formula, and standardized donor milk for very low birth weight premature babies.
