Becoming a milk collection site

Becoming a collection site is a simple process that begins with a phone call to MMBA, expressing a desire to be a collection site.

New collection sites are opened in areas where the breastfeeding rates support the goal of identifying donors in that area, and where the hospital desires a relationship with MMBA.

The opening of collection sites at hospitals or medical centers is an opportunity for that hospital to send out a positive message to the community regarding their belief in the importance of breastfeeding. Requirements include a protected location for a freezer (away from general public traffic), a hospital employee or volunteer who agrees to oversee the drop-off of milk, and a desire to advocate for breastfeeding.
