To provide safe, pasteurized human milk to premature and fragile babies when they need it the most, improving their health and survival.
Bottom Line for Portland
Northwest Mothers Milk Bank has dispensed over 1 million ounces of donated breast milk to hospitalized and outpatient infants across the Pacific Northwest. Kindhearted mothers have given thousands of ounces of human milk to help fragile babies in our community.
“Our baby was born too early; he fit in the palm of my hand. Donor milk was the best food until my own came in. The kindness of being helped by other mothers, gave me strength and calmed my fears.”
—S. Gibson, mother of Abel
