Mothers’ Milk Bank of New England
Breast milk is easier to get here than it used to be. The Mothers’ Milk Bank of New England in Newton, which set up shop in 2008, began processing milk a year ago and added a drop-off site at Isis Parenting in Hanover earlier this month. Before this bank opened, the nearest breast milk bank was in Ohio. We spoke with executive director Naomi Bar-Yam by phone about how milk is processed, who receives it, and how women can donate.
