Alexandria Clinic: Donating Breastmilk at the M.O.M. Depot
Did you know our breast milk bank, known as the M.O.M. Depot, has received over 40,000 ounces of donated breast milk?!
During World Breastfeeding Week we are celebrating the donors to our M.O.M Depot. The M.O.M. Depot is a breast milk depot that collects and stores milk from approved milk donors.

“Donated breast milk provides life-saving nutrition and immune support to fragile babies who need it most. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, human milk is the standard food for all infants including premature and sick infants. Human milk provides optimal nutrition and unique health benefits that last beyond infancy.” – Lindsey Buttweiler, RN, IBCLC
Lindsey Buttweiler, RN, and Chillon McKibbin, CNM both International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, work together to keep this program growing to help the increasing need in our community! If you would like to become a donor or have any questions, please call Lindsey at the Alexandria Clinic at 320-763-2700.
