Public Mothers' Milk Bank


Good news! Registering for the Public Mothers’ Milk Bank is possible again. If you would like to register, you are invited to do so if your baby is less than 8 months old.

Autorised vaccines by Health Canada do not involve a mother's milk donation prohibition period.

Important: The exceptional situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in delays of up to 6 weeks in following up on new registrations.

Thank you for donating mother's milk. Thank you for giving the gift of life!

Give milk. Give life.

Héma-Québec operates Québec’s only Public Mothers’ Milk Bank. This bank provides pasteurized human milk to infants who require medical care because they were born preterm at 32 weeks’ gestation or earlier and whose mother cannot breastfeed.

About one-third of mothers who deliver prematurely have difficulty producing enough milk to feed their infant. In some cases, the mother’s ability to breastfeed is compromised by illness or medication.
