The Mothers' Milk Bank of Austin screens, pasteurizes, and tests donated milk before it is dispensed by a doctor's prescription to hospitalized premature and ill babies and sick babies at home.
CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital - New Braunfels is a milk collection site serving the Mother's Milk Bank of Austin. Healthy mothers who are breastfeeding their own baby and have an abundant milk supply may donate their surplus breast milk to the depot. Volunteers donate without reimbursement to help save fragile infants. Thirty-eight donors have given 26,713 ounces of breast milk at this site since it was established. Donated milk in New Braunfels goes to babies in Texas, including the CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Children's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and to other locations in the United States to provide a safe alternative when mom's own milk is not available.
Call for 830.606.9111 extension 6193 or 830.643.6190 for more information or to make an appointment to drop off milk.
