Mothers’ Milk Depot at Infirmary Health
Women’s Health Alliance of Mobile
1720 Springhill Ave., Suite 400
The Mothers’ Milk Depot at Infirmary Health is a milk depot that provides breast milk for the Mothers’ Milk Bank of Alabama to distribute to those in need. Mothers unable to provide breast milk can nourish their babies with pasteurized donor milk. The Mothers’ Milk Depot at Infirmary Health relies on donations from healthy, lactating women who generously provide milk to help other babies. The donated milk is pasteurized, frozen and distributed per physician prescription by Mothers’ Milk Bank of Alabama. To become a volunteer donor, mothers must take part in a stringent screening process including medical screening, blood tests, medical and lifestyle history review, to ensure the quality and safety of the milk. For more information about becoming a milk donor, call (205) 942-8911 ext. 117, or email kwood@mmbal.org, or click on ‘how to donate’ on the website mmbal.org.
