Order Donor Milk
Most of the pasteurized donor human milk dispensed by Milk Bank WGL is delivered to Wisconsin and Illinois hospitals for use primarily in the NICU or Mother Baby Unit.
If you are a current hospital partner and would like to order donor milk, please call 847-262-5134 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
As part of our mission to increase donor milk access to families throughout Wisconsin and Illinois, we are growing a network of community donor milk dispensaries.
To obtain donor milk from a Milk Bank WGL dispensary, please 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.
We are currently developing additional donor milk dispensaries throughout Wisconsin and Illinois. Check here often for more donor milk dispensary locations opening in your area!
