Montreal Milk Share
Montreal Milk Share supports families who are unable to breastfeed, or unable to fully breastfeed their babies, by providing pathways for safe human milk donation. As there are currently no milk banks in Quebec, the only way to receive human milk is through personal donation.
By connecting and educating families who are in need of milk with families willing to donate milk, Montreal Milk Share is a way for people to get breastmilk for their babies.
I am the mother of a 6 year old daughter, 3 and a half year old twins and a 18 months old daughter, all of whom were exclusively breastfed.
After the birth of my twins, I received some milk from generous friends when I was required to supplement. I then returned the favour when my best friend had twins and needed milk. It is then that I realized that there was a need for a service linking people who were looking for breastmilk with people who had extra milk to share.
