Bronson Mothers' Milk Bank:

In Kalamazoo, Michigan at Bronson Hospital, there is a FDA and CDC approved Human Milk Bank that accepts healthy milk that goes through rigorous sterilization and screening tests (regulated just as blood banks are). If your baby has a medical diagnosis that recommends breast milk, insurance may pay the cost when a physician order is presented. Sometimes a mother may have a serious disease or chronic illness herself, and cannot breastfeed; then she may get her physician to order human milk for her baby with insurance approval.  Contact your local lactation consultant for more information.
