One of the best bonuses of creating a cooperative like this one has been the amazing families that we’ve met, both donors and recipients. Frankly, we think the recipients are brave for taking a stand for what their babies need, and the donors are incredibly generous. It’s remarkable that something as simple as helping another baby be fed can be construed as anything other than natural.
Thankfully, there is a growing community of folks around the world who are intent on reviving this age old solution to an age problem- proving donor breastmilk for a baby whose mother is unable or unavailable to provide it.
Our objective here is to connect families to facilitate milksharing. We want to provide you with as much information as possible so you can be empowered to make the best choice possible for your family. Whatever you choose, we respect it. Just wanted to put that out there.
Here are some other sites that do what we do, here and in other places around the country and world. We are not connected with them in any way and simply share this information after meeting mums who’ve used these sites to connect with other families to share breastmilk. And we want you to know what resources are out there for you.
So, check them out. See what resonates with you and go with that. As always we encourage you to do whatever research you need before accepting a breastmilk donation.
