This Baby's Mother's donated extra Breastmilk may save a baby's

life in the NICU...

Premature babies need human breast milk to decrease the incidence of life-threatening newborn infections.  But, because some mothers are unable to produce milk at first, or ever; safe, pasteurized donor human milk is needed.

Give to Mothers Milk Bank...


Mothers Milk Bank of Tennessee

Mothers' Milk Bank of Tennessee (MMBTN), a developing Milk Bank with the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA), is a non-profit donor human milk bank dedicated to providing safe, pasteurized donor breast milk to premature infants.

Without safe, pasteurized donor breast milk, many premature infants cannot survive; if they develop Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), they may have to have surgical removal of an extensive portion of their bowel. 

MMBTN serves Tennessee and the United States.
