About Us

UC Health Milk Bank is a non-profit milk bank owned and operated by UC San Diego Health. We aim to provide high quality pasteurized donor human milk to NICUs and families in our region, improve breast milk feeding outcomes, and drive human milk research. As an accredited member of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA), we uphold a rigorous process for donor milk safety and pasteurization.

As part of UC San Diego Health, we value science and adapt to the newest research. We are regularly looking for new ways to improve our process, product, and experience. This includes donor screening and labs, pre- and post-pasteurization bacterial cultures, and rigorous quality and safety measures.

With a rigorous process improvement mindset, we are elevating the standard of newborn nutrition.
