Mothers’ Milk Bank (MMB) is a nonprofit human milk bank providing pasteurized donor milk to newborns that need it most.

MMB collects, processes, tests and provides donor breast milk to babies in over 160 hospitals across 26 states. Ivinson has been a breast milk donation site under Mothers’ Milk Bank since 2015, when it became the first human milk donation collection site in the state of Wyoming.
