The Mothers’ Milk Bank Northeast (formerly Mothers’ Milk Bank of New England) is a non-profit community milk bank operating under the guidelines of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA). Our goal is to provide donated, pasteurized human milk to babies in fragile health throughout the Northeastern United States.
MMBNE is proud to serve our community by:
- Collecting, pasteurizing and dispensing donor human milk;
- Educating the medical and general communities about indications for, benefits and use of donor human milk;
- Furthering our knowledge of donor human milk through partnership research with hospitals, medical schools and community organizations.
Numerous studies prove the nutritional and immunologic benefits of human milk and support its use as a preventive treatment for various diseases. Often called “liquid gold” in reference to its golden hue, human milk provides invaluable nutrients, antibodies, and growth factors to nursing babies.
