Welcome to Milk Match

Disclaimer

This is a PARTIALLY finished website. The searching functions work, but things like a user agreement and a lot of the research/links aren't finished. By using this site, you agree not to hold me responsible for anything, at least until I have a real user agreement for you! I make no guarantees or promises of anything, except that I won't give away or sell your information ;)

Like always, you're more than welcome to help with development!

The main purpose of this site will be to connect people locally. Parents who are in search of human breastmilk will be able to connect with mamas who have extra to share. I have heard many a story of people shipping frozen milk across the country and I can't help but think there's got to be a better way!
