LAKE OSWEGO, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Medolac® Laboratories, an Oregon-based human milk nutritionals start-up, today announced the launch of Donormilk.com, the first direct-to-consumer offering of human milk. Medolac’s Co-op Donor Milk human milk is commercially sterile, safe, tested, homogenized, and can be stored at room temperature making it easier for home use. In addition, Medolac human donor milk is less expensive and safer than donor milk bought from online classifieds and other milk banks where testing, safety and nutritional content cannot always be verified. This new product will make it possible for more babies to receive 100% human milk protein instead of bovine or soy protein formula.
Medolac is committed to the fundamental principle that all babies should have access to breast milk and that direct breastfeeding by mothers is best for infants wherever and whenever possible. “The simple fact is that babies are healthier when they are fed human milk,” said Elena Medo, chairman and CEO of Medolac Laboratories. “Our vision at Medolac was to create a way to make human donor milk that is as easy to use as formula available for use with infants who otherwise would likely not have access to the benefits of human milk. These include babies of surrogates and non-traditional families, mothers experiencing a temporary supply shortage as well as post-discharge infants who fail to thrive on formula. With the introduction of donormilk.com, parents of healthy babies, preterm babies and medically fragile babies have access to a safe human donor milk alternative for their infants.”
Because the Medolac human donor milk has been through the Medolac process, it is safe, sterile, can be stored at room temperature for up to three years and is available in a ready-to-use format.
Parents who would like to provide their infants with human milk can order by visiting Donormilk.com. Parents should plan to supply a note from the infant’s primary healthcare provider to ensure the baby is under the care of a medical professional. No prescription is required and a template is available for the note on the website.
