Mothers’ Milk Depot

Infirmary Health is proud to support and be supported by the Mothers’ Milk Bank of Alabama. This program provides those mothers who cannot breast feed, the ability to use donor’s milk. The quality of this milk is assured as donations are taken only from healthy women and then the milk is pasteurized and frozen until use. Donors undergo and extensive screening process including analysis of medical history and blood screenings for major diseases.

Infirmary Health's Donation Depot is located at Women’s Health Alliance of Mobile and is open to approved donors, Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. In order to become a volunteer donor, women will take part in MMBAL’s stringent screening process to ensure the quality and safety of the milk. Learn more about this organization and how to donate at mmbal.org.

If you are a nursing mom in need of support, contact your pediatrician to see if you might be eligible for a prescription. For additional information, please email khabchi@mmbal.org.
