Milk Donation

Donor Milk in Vermont

Milk donation

The Vermont Donor Milk Center, Inc. is a milk depot as well as dispensing site. As a depot we accept milk from screened donors, store it in our freezers, and then ship it to the milk bank out of state for processing.

Becoming a screened milk donor can be done in four steps:

  • Complete a 15 minute phone screening.
  • Fill out forms.
  • Get a blood test (paid for by the out of state milk bank where pasteurization occurs.)
  • Make arrangements with us for delivery of your milk, at no cost to you.

You are able to donate, if:

  • You have breast milk that is truly extra, or cannot be used by your baby (bereaved and surrogate parents are welcome to become breast milk donors.)

  • You are in good health.

  • Your breast milk was put in the freezer within 48 hours of being pumped.

  • You are only using medications on our “approved for use in donors” list (call for the list.)

  • You are able to donate a minimum of 150 ounces (there is no minimum for bereaved donors.)

  • You are not using any herbal supplements (call if you have specific questions.)

You are not eligible, if:

  • You have or are being treated for HIV, HTLV, hepatitis B or C, or syphilis.
  • You have used recreational drugs in the past year, including marijuana.
  • You smoke or use tobacco products.
  • You drink alcohol daily.
  • You spent 3 months or more in the United Kingdom between 1980 and 1996 OR
