Are you requiring breastmilk?

We have donor breastmilk available for any age baby or young child regardless of your situation.

There are many situations and reasons why you may not be able to breastfeed or provide breastmilk for your baby temporarily or perhaps longer.

Whatever the reason, one of our health professionals is always on hand to help you.

How can Mothers Milk Bank Charity help with receiving milk?

Importantly, we can give you peace of mind knowing you will have a supply of breastmilk for your baby as and when you need it.

We do this by:

  1. providing advice to support you with breastfeeding while you supplement your supply with some donor milk;
  2. providing advice about how much donor milk you require if breastfeeding is not an option.

Why breastmilk?

Breastmilk feeding is the biological norm and breastmilk is a perfectly balanced source of nutrition.

It is a living substance, more complex than blood, and it contains a variety of nutrient and immunological factors that cannot be replicated.

It is instantly absorbed and with positive immediate and long-term health outcomes, it is the most beneficial food for infants.

Although its contents vary and are constantly changing, breastmilk contains active antibodies which protect newborns from a variety of infections and diseases.

It ensures optimum physical and neurological development and assists in the treatment of allergies and feeding intolerance, immunologic deficiencies and inborn errors of metabolism.

The World Health Organisation and UNICEF support donor mothers’ milk as the first alternative where mothers’ milk is not available.

Screening and pasteurising donated human milk ensure the absence of infection and disease.

The nutritional content and benefits of donated breastmilk are maintained, however, due to the processes and pasteurisation techniques employed at the Mothers’ Milk Bank.

Did you know that..

The bacteria help to lower the risk of asthma, obesity, allergies, dermatitis, inflammatory bowel diseases and neurodevelopmental conditions.

Breastmilk is the perfect food and optimal nutrition for all infants, newborn and especially premature babies.

Over 40,000 babies have adverse reactions to infant formula each year.

When a mother, parent or carer cannot breastfeed or breastmilk is not available for any reason, donor breastmilk from Mothers Milk Bank Charity is the best and safest next option.
