San Diego Mothers' Milk Bank

San Diego Mothers' Milk Bank is a developing milk bank that will open in 2019. Our goals are to help mothers breastfeed, to improve breastmilk donation and to ensure that all premature or ill babies in San Diego County and Imperial Valley have access to donor milk. 

Over the next year, as we build our milk processing facility in San Diego, we have temporarily partnered with Mothers Milk Bank at Austin (MMBA). We will develop our facility in three stages: 

1. Donation Stage (available now) 

Mothers interested in donating their milk will work with Mothers' Milk Bank at Austin to become an approved donor and given instructions on how to ship their milk directly to Austin.

2. Depot Stage (projected for October 2018)

Once we are an official milk depot, after a donor mother is approved, milk can also be collected locally at the San Diego Blood Bank who will ship milk to Austin.

3. Fully Operational Milk Bank in San Diego (mid-2019)

After our San Diego Mothers' Milk Bank is open, milk can be donated and processed fully in San Diego and distributed to our local community. 

Mothers who wish to donate milk to research do not need to be approved and should contact San Diego Mothers' Milk Bank directly at 858-249-1717 or
