Northwest Mothers Milk Bank is a not-for-profit organization rooted in the Pacific Northwest community. Founded by a group of passionate and accomplished healthcare professionals who, through dedication and hard work, have increased public knowledge and acceptance of donor milk use. Receiving both financial and in-kind support from local organizations and individuals, Northwest Mothers Milk Bank became a reality and has quickly grown into a thriving donor milk bank after opening its doors in July 2013.

Organizations Team with Local Milk Bank to Support Preterm Baby Health

February 06, 2017

Mednax, Moda Health, and The Randall Foundation have each made significant financial donations to enable Northwest Mothers Milk Bank (NWMMB) to obtain a milk analyzer. Human milk donated by local mothers, who have passed the rigorous screening process, will be analyzed to determine its nutritional composition. This essential information will be labeled on each individual bottle of milk dispensed by NWMMB and will improve the care for the one in eight infants born prematurely in the United States.

"When mothers are unable to breastfeed their newborns, donated human milk is the best nourishment the babies can receive. Human milk can prevent serious illnesses and feeding complications associated with premature birth."
