2018 Mothers' Milk Drive
The AAP Section on Breastfeeding has partnered with the Mothers' Milk Bank of Florida to organize a milk drive at the 2018 National Conference in Orlando, FL. The 2018 national conference will provide breastfeeding attendees with an opportunity to donate excess milk to Mothers' Milk Bank of Florida, Inc (MMBFL).
The event aims to raise awareness about the need for human milk donations and the importance of human milk banks for sick or premature infants.
If you are attending the national conference but leaving your baby behind or have extra milk, and are interested in milk donation we invite you to participate in the milk drive!
If you or a family member will be attending the national conference from November 2-6, 2018 and are interested in donating your milk, please click on the link below:
All potential donors are required to complete screening steps.
Becoming a milk donor starts with a real-time interview - either face-to-face, telephone, or VoIP service via internet (e.g. skype) in compliance with guidelines issued by our accrediting agency, Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA). If the candidate 'passes' the screening, the milk bank will send an email with an information packet and links to questionnaire, consent, and medical releases. A lab requisition for free serological screening (similar to prenatal screening) and stickers printed with a Milk Donor ID number will be delivered via USPS.
