Human milk makes all the difference for premature infants. Prolacta Bioscience offers guaranteed supply* of quality donor human milk to supplement mother's own milk.

Donor Human Milk

Pasteurized. Standardized. Quality Assured.

The benefits of breastfeeding are well established and highly recommended by healthcare professionals and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).1 Mother’s own milk (MOM) and donor human milk (when MOM is not available) are rapidly becoming the standard of care for feeding all premature infants. Your neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) can depend on Prolacta for the safest, highest-quality donor human milk—with no supply shortages.

  • “Breastfeeding and human milk are the normative standards for infant feeding and nutrition.”
  • “The potent benefits of human milk are such that all preterm infants should receive human milk.”
  • “If mother’s own milk is unavailable … pasteurized donor milk should be used.”

— American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Policy on Breastfeeding and the Use of Human Milk2

“ There are significant risks involved in the collection, processing, and distribution of donor milk–based products. The behaviors of the donors, biochemical and genetic screening, and milk processing are critical to mitigation of these recognized risks. Testing at this level of rigor appears to be justified.”

—Bloom Report on Safety of Donor Milk5
