Many hospitals promote the benefits of breast milk, especially for babies being treated in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A hospital may establish a donor breast milk program to help seriously ill or premature newborns. A donor program makes it easier for mothers to gain access to breast milk if they cannot adequately breastfeed their babies themselves.
At Dignity Health, we believe that breast milk is best for baby and want to supply mothers with all the tools they need to provide it for their newborn. If you would like to learn more about a breast milk donor program in Arizona, call 844.898.8079.
Breast milk helps nourish newborns better than any other food they could have. Both donors and recipients of breast milk have many reasons to participate in a donor breast milk program.

Donating breast milk benefits the donor because:
Dignity Health hospitals provide donated breast milk if the newborn is premature or high-risk and the mother cannot produce enough milk to meet the baby’s needs. If your hospital does not provide the service, be sure to confirm with your insurance provider whether or not your plan will cover a portion of the cost.
If you want to donate breast milk, you will likely have to go through an application process to ensure you are a good candidate for participating in the program. Prior to approval, your milk may be evaluated for quality. If you are approved, you will receive containers to fill with milk. You will ship the filled containers to a processing center, where your milk will be tested again for safety and pasteurized. The milk will then be delivered to the hospital.
Dignity Health provides specialized care for newborn babies, including programs for breast milk donation in Arizona.
