Steps to Becoming a Milk Donor
1. Complete a 10-15 minute phone screening by calling the Mothers' Milk Bank at Austin at 512-494-0800 or 1-877-813-MILK (6455).
2. Complete and return an informational packet.
3. Have a blood test done. (We pay.)
4. When we receive your paperwork and lab results, our Executive Director calls you with your approval status.
Milk donors must be in good general health and not regularly taking any medications or herbal supplements (with a few exceptions). You can donate milk that you have pumped before becoming a donor. Also, the milk you donate could very likely serve babies in your community. We are currently serving over 60 hospitals in Texas and 14 other states, including hospitals in San Antonio.
"Every person, at some point, needs to know that they have done something to make a difference. What a wonderful gift that the Mother's Milk Bank at Austin offers babies and families in Texas" - Donor Mom
