Our top priority is the safety and quality of donor breast milk.
The Saskatchewan Human Breast Milk Bank follows all federal, provincial and municipal regulations.
Women wishing to donate breast milk fill out a lifestyle and medical history questionnaire and take a simple blood test to rule out infectious diseases. It’s important that a mother’s milk supply be adequate for her own needs before donating.
Breast milk donors are screened and donor breast milk is tested to ensure donor breast milk is safe for medical use.
Our processing and storage preserves many of the immunological and infection prevention properties of breast milk.
We operate on a cost-recovery basis and do not profit from the sale of breast milk. The costs of processing, storing, testing and delivering the products will vary depending on your needs and location.
Donating your breast milk, money, or time helps save lives.
Thank you for helping premature and fragile infants access donor human milk.
Exclusive human milk feeding significantly reduces the incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a leading cause for prematurity-related death. A premature baby in the NICU may eat as little as one ounce or less in a single feeding.
