Donation From The Southern Tier Breastfeeding Coalition!!!

The New York Milk Bank is deeply grateful for the incredible support from The Southern Tier Breastfeeding Coalition. Laura Walker, Roland Shea, and Patricia Davis toured our milk bank and the visit was not only inspiring but also incredibly generous, as they donated nearly $10,000 to our cause. Thank you for making a difference and helping us continue our mission!


Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

Did you know that a new national law called the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act goes into effect this month? This new law provides groundbreaking protections for pregnant, postpartum, and pumping workers, and gives you the right to get accommodations at work that will help you keep your job and protect your health. 


The law gives you the right to things like extra breaks, flexible scheduling to attend doctors appointments, time off to recover from childbirth or miscarriage, light duty, remote work, and much more. 

This new law only helps workers if they know about it. Check out the Know Your Rights site from our friends at A Better Balance to learn more. 


Victory Party!

Take a look at our executive director, Linda Harelick, and director of community relations, Roseanne Motti, at the Victory Party! hosted by A Better Balance in New York City celebrating the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act!

Happy 1st Bee-day to Caleb and Caden!

Over the last year, NYMB has been captivated by the growth of twins Caleb and Caden! These adorable little ones have truly thrived and blossomed, thanks in part to the support of donated breast milk. However, it's bittersweet to announce that they have just received their final delivery of milk from NYMB. The silver lining is that Caleb and Caden are now embarking on their next exciting milestone: solid foods!

Meet Mr. Ernest!

Tovah and Carl, the loving parents of Caden and Caleb, recently captured a heartwarming moment between their one-year-old twins and their FedEx Express delivery driver. This dedicated driver has been faithfully delivering their weekly donor milk all year. 


They also shared with us the following heartwarming message:
