|While breastmilk is perfect nutrition for healthy full-term babies, it does not provide enough nutrition for premature and critically ill infants. These infants may need additional calories and protein, in addition to breastmilk, to support their growth and development.
Your breastmilk helps Prolacta provide hospitals with the world’s first and only nutritional fortifiers made exclusively from donor breastmilk, instead of cow milk. Our fortifiers are changing the standard of care for premature infants globally. Premature infants receiving a 100% human milk–based diet including Prolacta’s fortifiers had fewer complications1-5 and went home sooner.6
As a breastmilk donor, you can make a lasting impact on the lives of babies and their families. Many of our donors tell us that their experience donating gives them a sense of purpose. Plus, we work to ensure you have all the resources and information needed to make the process of donating without leaving your home as rewarding as possible.
Because extra pumping requires time and effort, Prolacta compensates mothers $1.20 for every qualified ounce of milk that is donated. Breastmilk has been proven to be beneficial for all babies, but when it comes to babies who are critically ill or born prematurely, it can be lifesaving.
Each of our donors has a unique story and an ultimate reason for why they donate.
