Northwest Mothers Milk Bank

A nonprofit organization

Northwest Mothers Milk Bank is proud to be the only nonprofit human milk bank in the Pacific Northwest. Rooted in community, we are proud to serve hospitals and outpatient babies throughout Washington, Oregon, and Alaska.

"My son was born four weeks early and small for gestational age. Donor milk played a vital role in his first few days of life. It made all the difference in preparing him to grow and develop during his NICU time. I am so grateful to the donor moms who provided the milk he consumed initially. I'm so thankful to be able to give back". - Milk Donor, Aimee Herrington 

One in eight infants in the Pacific Northwest is born premature. Premature infants are at risk for life-threatening infections, longer hospital stays, and lifelong disabilities. Evidence-based research show the use of human donor milk from an accredited milk bank should be the standard of care for supplementation of hospitalized premature and ill newborns. This is particularly the case for those in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). 

Premature and fragile infants deserve all the support possible for a healthy outcome. The use of donor milk is a proven way to improve healthcare outcomes, promote breastfeeding success, and lower healthcare costs. 

Northwest Mothers Milk Bank provides life-saving donor milk to NICUs at 26 hospitals across Washington. Together with our community partners, we operate 18 milk drop locations throughout the state, making it easier for milk donors to safely drop-off their milk. Our outpatient program provides overnight shipping to families anywhere in Washington.

Our community care program covers the donor human milk processing fees for families who can't otherwise afford it. All babies should have a chance to thrive. No parent should be prevented from providing life-saving treatment for their baby. Your gift supports access to donor milk for all babies who need it.
