Bronson Mothers' Milk Bank - Bronson Healthcare
A mother's own milk is the best food for her baby. But when a mother can't provide breast milk, milk from healthy donor mothers is the next best thing. That's when our Mothers' Milk Bank can help.

Our mission is to provide donor human milk to premature and sick babies whose mothers are unable to provide their own milk or who have a low supply of milk. We are currently in the need of additional donors. If interested, call the Bronson Mothers' Milk Bank at (269) 341-6146.
