The Mother’s milk bank of Austin provides an invaluable service.
I have donated twice and both times the screening process was seamless and I was treated very courteously.

My very last milk donation was to the newly opened Austin's Mothers Milk Bank 20 years ago! Prior to that, it had to be shipped to Raleigh/Durham. As a NICU nurse, I knew the importance of human milk very well. Then in 2000, I became an IBCLC.
