Mothers on the frontlines: The milk bank saving babies in wartime 11/14/2023

We are always so impressed by the response of mothers with milk to share. We are in contact with the director of the National Bank of Israel, Sharon Bransburg Zabary, and she reports that they have a robust supply at the moment. If need arises, she knows to reach out to the hmbana accredited milk banks in North America. Thank you to all who are inquiring and wanting to make sure that babies are safe.

Mothers on the frontlines: The milk bank saving babies in wartime Hundreds of mothers nationwide contribute to Magen David Adom (MDA) National Bank, aiding premature and vulnerable babies in hospitals and those affected by maternal tragedies.


Thanks to Yardsale! for rocking it at the milk bank today. What a great donor appreciation event!


MMBA gives a special salute today to military moms. It’s not easy, but they find a way to serve both country and family.


Love this!!!!

Milk is so magical that it formed an entire galaxy ✨

One Greek legend explains how the Milky Way was created by Heracles when he was a baby. His father Zeus was fond of his son, who was born of the mortal woman Alcmene. Zeus decided to let the infant Heracles suckle on his divine wife Hera's milk when she was asleep. Hera’s divine milk would endow the Heracles with god-like qualities. When Hera woke up and realized that she was breastfeeding an unknown infant, she pushed him away and the spurting milk became the Milky Way. Even the word “galaxy” is derived from “gala,” the Greek word for milk!

This donor mom knows the breastfeeding struggle is real. Her determination has helped newborns across the country receive the nutrition they need.

“Our baby was born healthy, but we had an undiagnosed latch problem, which resulted in him becoming dehydrated and lethargic when he was only a few days old. We temporarily supplemented and struggled with breastfeeding for two long months of working with lactation consultants.

I almost gave up. But I was determined for my baby to have mother's milk because we had been educated about the various health benefits. My heart went out to babies who do not have access to a mother's milk. I searched to find MMBA, then worked once again with a lactation consultant to pump and build a supply to donate. MMBA was kind and attentive throughout the process.

Our little one is now a sweet and adventurous 12-month-old, and we look forward to teaching him the joys of helping others!”

Thanks to donor mom Michelle’s resilience and generosity after heartbreak, hundreds of vulnerable newborns have received the nourishment they need.

“When I gave birth to my first daughter four years ago, I didn't know breast milk donation existed. I barely produced enough milk to feed my daughter. Fast forward to last year when I was expecting my son, Evan. I knew breastfeeding and pumping would be part of my journey then too. Sadly, I lost my precious boy at 38 weeks. While I didn't have it in me to continue pumping to donate, I did learn about donating breast milk.

We were blessed with a beautiful baby girl in June and were able to utilize a few ounces of donor milk to help her out after she was born three weeks early. I quickly realized that, unlike my first breastfeeding experience, this one would go smoothly. I also noticed that I was producing more than my daughter needed. I began building a freezer stash of breast milk to start the process of becoming a milk donor.

I am honored to be able to support the babies that need this milk the most. I had a deep feeling of peace as I dropped off my first donation of around 250 ounces. I prayed over that milk that the babies who benefited from my milk would grow healthy and strong like my beautiful daughter is now.”

You can help babies grow healthy and strong too. Schedule a phone interview today:

We are so grateful for JLA support. Since 1999 the JLA has provided volunteers and finds for our Charitable Assistance Program. This organization demonstrates long term commitment to community, and we are proud to be partners.

“Drive home a Jeep, provide warm coats for kids to keep.” You heard it here, folks! The legendary has spoken. In case you missed it, this morning, we had our 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited parked by El Arroyo’s famous marquee sign.

With our Coats for Kids Coat Drive gearing up, remember that your A Christmas Affair raffle ticket purchases will directly impact our community. One ticket for this Jeep has the potential to provide 5 warm coats to Central Texas children who would otherwise go without one.

We’d like to thank for their partnership and continued commitment to uplifting the Austin community. Buy your tickets with the to secure your chances on this stellar ride ✨🚀


When donor mom Hannah was overproducing after the birth of her little guy, showing off his Milk Bank tee here, she decided to help other little ones in need.

“With my second child, it became apparent immediately that I was overproducing. I started using a milk collector to ease some of the pain, but pumping was the only way I found to prevent and soothe clogged ducts. I knew I wouldn’t need a huge stash or have space for one, so I sought to donate.

I’m a pediatric physical therapist, so I knew that NICU babies need this milk desperately! Our pediatrician was surprised I asked about it when our son was only two weeks old.”

If your extra breast milk is taking up valuable freezer real estate, schedule a phone interview:


Congratulations on your tenth anniversary. We are grateful for your assistance to needy families.


Several of our donor moms began their journeys as recipients. Taylor is one such donor, and we are so grateful she chose to pay it forward in such a beautiful way.

“Our baby boy was born at 27 weeks. We were so grateful for the donor milk that he received in the NICU while we waited for my milk to come in. I knew that if I ended up with enough to donate back, I would love to pay it forward and help other precious NICU babies like the women who helped mine! I feel so grateful to have been a part of this process from both sides!”

If you’re a lactating mom, you can help NICU babies too. Schedule your phone interview today: (link in bio)

We are so moved by donor mom Heather’s compassion after tremendous loss.

“I was so grateful to be able to donate milk in honor of both of my children! My daughter was born at 24 weeks. Unfortunately, we did not get to bring her home from the hospital.

The time we spent in the NICU has forever imprinted on my heart. When my son was born, donating my oversupply was a meaningful way for me to be able to parent both of my kids. Providing even a small amount of help to babies in the NICU brought me closer to my daughter!”

If you’re a new mom who wants to help babies in need, we would love to hear from you. Visit to schedule a screening call.


Sharing is caring - something this little milk donor knows oh-so-well! Hope your day is as cute as this guy! 😍


Twice as nice!

Have you wondered why the Milk Bank doesn’t defer moms who have caffeine in their diets? ☕☕☕

Caffeine appears in breastmilk rapidly after mom drinks it. You might notice that your baby is jittery if you have had multiple cups or other sources of caffeine in a day. The solution? Cut back to accommodate your infant’s response.

For preterm infants, caffeine is actually helpful. It’s given daily in the neonatal intensive care units because it helps preterm infants avoid breathing issues.

Moderation is key. Although an absolute safe intake is not clearly defined, think about limiting your intake to no more than five cups a day.


🎃 October is finally here! 🎃

Happy spooky season to all who celebrate!

🎵 Donating’s so nice, donor mom Clarissa did it twice! 🎵 Thank you, Clarissa!

“I’m glad MMBA accepted me as a donor for the second time. My first time being a donor was in 2018. My daughter was nine months old. I was clueless about donating until I did more research after noticing my freezer had no more space. I was able to donate only once my first time around.

My second time was with my son, who was born prematurely. I started my donating journey when he was only a month old. I'm excited that I could start my journey earlier and donate more than the first time. It felt good to be able to help other babies in need. This year has been tough on moms, due to formula shortages. I encourage other moms who can produce extra milk to donate to MMBA.”

Mila here looks pretty proud of the bounty of liquid gold she and her mama, Ivette, have shared with other little ones.

So far, Ivette and Mila have donated 708 ounces of donor human milk!
