  • About

    Located in Fort Worth’s medical district, Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas (MMBNT) is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004 to provide premature and critically ill infants with pasteurized donor human milk when their own mother's milk is not available. In eleven years, MMBNT has dispensed over 2.5 million ounces to over 110 hospitals from over 5,500 donors. Like the babies it serves, the milk bank continues to grow and thrive. In 2015, MMBNT dispensed a record 552,761 ounces and approved 778 donors. The majority of pasteurized donor human milk is dispensed by prescription to medically needy babies in North Texas. MMBNT is one of two non-profit milk banks in Texas and one of 24 in North America that receive oversight from the Human Milk Banking Association of North America. Milk donors are generous mothers who donate the extra breastmilk their own babies don't need. MMBNT collects donations from over 40 milk depots located in communities throughout North Texas and other states. Donor milk is logged into a sophisticated computer tracking system and is pasteurized using the Holder pasteurization method, a process used specifically for human milk that protects as many immunological properties as possible.
