Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas strives to improve the health and survival of premature and critically ill infants through the safe provision of pasteurized donor human milk.
Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas was established as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 2003.
Since opening, we have dispensed over 2 million ounces from over 5000 donors to more than 100 hospitals in 12 states. And the need continues to grow.
In 2013, we provided over $650,000 in charitable care. Eligible recipients are never turned away regardless of the ability to pay for milk processing.
80% of our donor milk is distributed to premature and sick babies in hospitals. 20% is dispensed to fragile babies at home.
Donor Milk Safety
All donor milk is pasteurized and tested through strict national scientific guidelines and standards.
Human milk banking is older than blood banking and has a safer track record.
Milk donors are generous mothers who donate surplus milk and are screened free of charge through medical histories and blood tests. Mothers do not receive payment or compensation for donated milk.
1 out of every 8 babies is born prematurely. Human milk has been proven to enhance survivability and decrease complications of premature and critically ill infants.
