Have an abundance of breast milk?

Donate to the Lila Grace Milk Depot, directly through Annapolis Pediatrics!

Lila Grace Milk Depot

Annapolis Pediatrics is proud to be partnered with the Lila Grace Milk Depot.

At the Lila Grace Milk Depot, moms with more-than-needed breast milk is collected so it can be shipped to Mothers’ Milk Bank Northeast for pasteurization, then re-distributed to fragile babies. They are locally operated in Crofton, Maryland with a focus on outreach, health, and service to babies and mothers in our community.

Visit the Lila Grace Milk Depot website to register to be a breast milk donor.

Your donation helps to keep thousands of NICU babies healthy and growing strong.
