Donated breastmilk can help save a baby’s life

You can help save a baby’s life by donating your breastmilk to the Rogers Hixon Ontario Human Milk Bank, an Ontario-wide resource for pre-term and sick hospitalized infants.

Who Benefits from Donor Milk?

Donating breastmilk can help save a preterm baby’s life by dramatically reducing the rate of a serious medical complication. There are approximately 1500 low birth weight babies in Ontario a year and 70% of preterm babies in hospitals across Ontario don’t have access to a full supply of their mother’s own milk, leaving them with reduced vital nutrients and protective properties.

“Becoming a milk donor could be a life altering decision for a baby who is medically fragile. It is a generous and impactful gift that we hope Ontario mothers will make.”
