Breast Milk Depot

Antelope Valley Hospital is a designated Breast Milk Depot. This means breastfeeding moms can drop off breast milk at AVH. It will then be processed, pasteurized, and distributed to infants in need of this vital resource. To become a donor, call the EBC at 661‑726‑6210.

A brief medical history and a free blood test are required, which are handled by the Mother’s Milk Bank (the agency that processes the donated milk). Approved donors will be provided with milk bags and instructions on how to store their much‑appreciated donation until it can be dropped off at the Women & Infants Pavilion at AVH.
