Protect, Promote, and Support Breastfeeding

Northwest Mothers Milk Bank (NWMMB) advocates for human milk feeding for all infants. The milk bank works to educate families and communities. They collaborate with healthcare systems to improve the health and survival of vulnerable infants in the Pacific Northwest. NWMMB’s vision is a region where all infants have access to the human milk they need. They are dedicated to increasing fair and equitable access to pasteurized donor milk for vulnerable infants when mother’s/parent’s own milk is not available. NWMMB also supports policy and public health measures that promote breastfeeding and align with evidence-based research.

"It is fundamental that human milk banks continue to protect and promote breastfeeding. Advocating for stronger support systems for families is essential and assures positive health outcomes for infants in our communities.”
