Order Milk for Home Use
Donor milk may be used outside of the hospital setting for many reasons including low milk supply, surrogacy, or adoption.
We require an order or prescription to dispense outpatient milk to babies and children at home.
We have a growing network of community donor milk dispensaries. To receive donor milk from a dispensary, follow these steps:
Contact your child’s medical provider and request an order for donor milk. You can bring the order or prescription to the dispensary or request to have it faxed directly to the dispensary.
Contact the dispensary for hours, pricing, and availability. Dispensaries accept cash and credit payments. Unfortunately, they are unable to bill your insurance at this time.
Pick up your donor milk during regular business hours.
Please Enter a City, County, or Zip Code to locate the nearest donor milk dispensary.
