Breast Milk Pump

In partnership with Mother’s Milk Bank of Florida, we have now opened a mother’s milk donation site in Key West! You may be able to donate your breast milk to help a baby in the neonatal intensive care unit for premature infants, even if you do not live near Key West.

Why Donate Breastmilk?

Almost 10% of babies are born prematurely in Florida. Milk donors in excellent health provide life-saving milk to fragile infants across the state. Donor human milk (DHM) is dispensed by prescription only. The highest-priority recipients are premature and ill hospitalized infants.

We answer frequently asked questions here: Mothers' Milk Bank of Florida.
