breast pump support

Mothers’ Milk Bank supports breastfeeding mothers and community agencies that help mothers succeed in their desire to breastfeed. The Mothers’ Milk Bank is known to support babies with donor milk to supplement mom’s own milk that may be insufficient. We also provide breast pump services for the mothers who need a pump for going back to work or are away from their infants for a period of time.

We offer breast pumps locally through our Medi-Cal Breast Pump Program and our Breast Pump Rental Program. We offer Medela and Ameda pumps based on eligibility. Please call us to find out if you qualify for a breast pump.

Mothers’ Milk Bank has been an active supporter of breast feeding programs and events. For years we have supported breast feeding through hospital activities, flash mom events, strollerthons, and milk drives. As a nonprofit operating in over 10 states, Mothers’ Milk has been committed to nurturing babies by providing them with human milk and supporting mothers through the process of breast feeding.
