The Mother’s Milk Bank of Montana often has demand that exceeds supply. We are always looking for mothers who have spare breast milk that could be used to help a premature or ill infant thrive.
We have also accepted stored breast milk from mothers who have suffered the devastating loss of a child. There can be comfort for bereaved mothers in knowing that milk for their own baby can help someone else’s. See more about bereavement donations here.
