Donate Breast Milk in Louisiana

Breast milk donation drop off locations in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette

Did you know that you can save the lives of babies born too soon and too small with your breast milk donation? The Mothers’ 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.


Getting Your Milk to MMBA

  • You must be approved as a milk donor with the Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin before you begin dropping off milk. View preparation tips before you drop off your milk.
  • You don’t live near our New Orleans or Baton Rough milk depot collection sites? Out-of-area donors are approved on a case-by-case basis. The minimum initial donation for out of town donors is 200 ounces, with the expectation that the donor will continue to donate. Out-of-area donors should have access to dry ice (for which we reimburse). We also supply the coolers for shipping. Contact Laura Tankersley to request a cooler.
