Fact Sheet

About

  • Mothers' Milk Bank of Tennessee (MMBTN) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

  • Our mission is to collect, process, and dispense Pasteurized Human Donor Milk (PHDM) to preterm and other fragile infants who would not otherwise have access to human milk. 

  • We opened our pasteurization facility in Murfreesboro, Tennessee in November of 2021. 

  • We are the newest member of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA).

    • The primary mission of HMBANA Milk Banks is to provide safe Pasteurized Donor Human Milk (PDHM) by prescription to vulnerable babies in hospital neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). The secondary mission is to provide milk to other babies as needed and as available.

Who We Serve

  • Pasteurized Human Donor Milk (PHDM) is prioritized for the smallest and most medically fragile babies, for whom research shows the most positive benefits from human milk. At this time, Mothers' Milk Bank of Tennessee (MMBTN) distributes PDHM exclusively to hospital neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). 

Our Milk Donors

  • We do not compensate milk donors. All milk donors are volunteers who produce milk in excess of their own babies’ needs. 

  • Prior to approval, all donors must complete a screening interview and donor application, obtain physician's consent, and have a blood test which is covered by Mothers' Milk Bank of Tennessee (MMBTN).
