NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank is Canada's only community-based milk bank. Operating as a charitable organization, NorthernStar screens breastfeeding mothers, accepting donations of excess milk from approved donors to be pasteurized in our laboratory. Milk is then dispensed to sick babies in hospitals and at home. We believe, and science supports, that human milk is the best option for any baby and that all babies have the right to the life-saving nutrients of pasteurized donor human milk.
"I can't think of enough wonderful positive gracious words for this organization!! Not only have these wonderful donor women given my early twins the best start in life, but three months later I am still using some to nourish and grow my twin girls. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! ️️"
"This is an absolutely fantastic organization to entrust your breast milk too! ... This is definitely a great organization to support especially if you are looking to financially donate to a great cause!"
"NorthernStar Milk Bank has been an absolute godsend for my premature twins. My milk supply is low despite trying everything under the sun to up my supply. They were born at 33 weeks & being able to give them donor human milk has made a world of a difference.
