Did you know that you can save the lives of babies born too soon and too small with your breast milk donation? The Mother's Milk Bank at Austin is a nonprofit organization that relies on healthy, lactating women to donate their extra breast milk to preterm and ill infants in need when a mother cannot provide her own breast milk. If you are interested in becoming a milk donor and real-life superhero, fill out the form on this page to initiate a simple screening process to determine your eligibility to donate precious milk. Someone from the milk bank will contact you within 48 hours of receiving your information. The following includes information about how and where to donate breast milk in the Houston area.
The Woman’s Hospital of Texas
Houston, TX 77054
Donors may drop off milk at any time. Go directly to the East Tower/Emergency Entrance which is immediately on the left after entering the Woman’s Hospital campus from Fannin--use the circle drive to pull up to the entrance and park while they drop off milk.
As of May 2016: Due to construction, the depot freezer has been temporarily moved to another part of the hospital. When you donate, a security guard will escort you to the new location. This will be the case for the next few months as construction continues.
