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!!! ️️"
"The staff have been amazing to work with and made the process very easy. I've donated once now and am planning to continue. The NICU was amazing when my daughter had a collapsed lung so it feels great to give back. I'm grateful the NICU nurses educated me on this opportunity!"
"The team at the milk bank are incredible, kind and welcoming. I look forward to our donations as the ladies there are so grateful. They can answer any questions you have and are so supportive. They make donations easy! Give it a try!"
