In the heartwarming journey of surrogacy, the ability to share breast milk between surrogates and intended parents is a priceless gift. As surrogacy becomes an increasingly popular path to parenthood, Milk Stork's call to move this "liquid gold" safely and efficiently across distances has never been greater. 

The Nutritional Power of Breast Milk in Surrogacy

Breast milk, rich in essential nutrients and antibodies, plays a critical role in supporting the health and development of newborns. For intended parents who want breast milk as a feeding option, the nutritional value of breast milk is top priority, and a commitment to giving their new baby the best possible start in life. However, the geographical distance often present on surrogacy journeys can stand in the way of that commitment.

Milk Stork Bridges the Distance

Milk Stork handles the logistical challenges for incredible surrogates who choose to extend the surrogacy journey by supplying breast milk, and the intended parents who are so dedicated to providing optimal nutrition for their baby.

By facilitating the safe and efficient transport of breast milk, Milk Stork is proud to play a pivotal role in the surrogacy experience. We've shipped more than 7 million ounces of breast milk since 2015—a lot of which has been between surrogate and intended parents. Safe, reliable breast milk shipping ensures that the precious connection between surrogates and intended parents can carry on without compromise.
