MOTHERS' MILK
SAVES BABIES

Mothers' milk is the best nutrition for newborns. But some babies don't have access to their mother's milk.
Mothers' Milk Bank of Tennessee helps these vulnerable babies get the life-saving nutrition they need.

May 19 is Human Milk Donation Day

 

For more than a decade, May 19th has been celebrated as the internationally designated World Day of Human Milk Donation

 

Originating in Brazil in 2004 as a national event, the day was created to promote the importance of donating human milk to non-profit human milk banks.  It is now marked by milk banks and milk bank supporters globally - and with over 750 human milk banks in 66 countries - there are very many donors to thank!

For this year’s event, the Mothers’ Milk Bank of Tennessee will have a month-long celebration highlighting the impact donated human milk and human milk banks has for the families in need of human milk for their precious infants throughout Tennessee.

 

Celebrate with us! Each week until June, the Mothers’ Milk Bank of Tennessee will share helpful information, blogs, and stories that emphasize the purpose of the World Day of Human Milk.

Throughout this celebration, and as always, your contributions and assistance will be greatly appreciated to help us continue to spread awareness of the need for human milk for those who need it most in Tennessee!

Financial donations are tax deductible
and go directly to providing milk for needy babies 

WHO WE ARE

WE ARE A DEVELOPING MILK BANK

 

Mothers' Milk Bank of Tennessee is a Developing Milk Bank with the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA). We are a 501c3 Non Profit and a 100% volunteer organization.

 

All financial donations are tax deductible and go directly to feeding the most vulnerable babies in our State.

 

Our Mission is to provide safe, pasteurized donor human milk to at-risk newborns and other babies in Tennessee that might not otherwise have access to this life-saving liquid gold.

 

To that end, we are building a pasteurization facility in Middle Tennessee with four-hour max delivery time to NICUs across the State. WE NEED YOUR CHARITABLE DONATIONS!
