As New York City's first milk depot, we at the The Upper Breast Side take the growth and success of the New York Milk Bank very seriously.
On a daily basis, we meet moms who are working through issues related to nursing and milk supply issues. Intead of promoting the default "supplement with formula," we are so pleased to educate parents as to the availability of human donor breast milk as a lifesaving alternative.
We are in fact, rejuvenating what mothers for eons have done when they are unable to nurse or maintain supplemental supplies. With this viable option, we have the ability to use screened and processed frozen human donor breast milk.
In order to help the New York Milk Bank locate bigger space, and more freezers to hold donor milk, and a second pasteurizer which would increase production threefold. That processor alone costs $40,000!
