Nursing mothers earn money and own stock with innovative new cooperative
Date:5/10/2013

LANSING, Mich., May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- An innovative approach to milk banking becomes a reality this Mother's Day as the Mother's Milk Cooperative launches the only paid milk donor program in the United States. Dubbed, "Milk Money", this program will offer nursing mothers the opportunity to earn money from home.

Whether Milk Money helps cover diaper expenses, a date night, or starts a college fund; for many young families a little extra money can go a long way," says Adrianne Weir the Co-op's CEO.

The Co-op's mission to increase the donor milk supply is in alignment with recommendations made in the Surgeon General's Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding, the US Health and Human Services AHRQ Evidence Report, and The Global Action Report on Preterm Birth recently released by The March of Dimes, Save the Children and The WHO. Breast milk is important for every baby but can mean the difference between life and death for premature infants. The co-op was formed to address the global shortage of donor breast milk critical for use in neonatal intensive care units. This shortage has resulted from the increased use of donor human milk for preterm babies driven by a growing body of medical evidence. 

All milk donors will undergo stringent qualification steps including p
