Founded in 2003, Mothers' Milk Bank of North Texas accepts donated breast milk from carefully screened, healthy, breastfeeding mothers. Milk is pasteurized, tested, and frozen until prescribed.
MMBNT follows the guidelines of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America. The Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) is a non-profit professional membership association for milk banks in Canada, Mexico and the United States and as such sets the standards and guidelines for donor milk banking for those areas. MMBNT is one of 16 non-profit donor human milk banks in North America.
Milk processing is costly, so a small processing fee is charged. This fee covers less than half of the actual costs involved in screening donor mothers and pasteurizing, testing and storing of donor milk. No baby with a medical need is denied donor milk regardless of their ability to pay processing fees.
