Nursing mothers now have a place to donate excess breast milk in Albuquerque for needy babies.

Dar a Luz Birth & Health Center has opened a milk depot, the first and only one in New Mexico, where women can drop off their milk once they’ve passed a screening process.

The milk is sent in dry ice to Mothers’ Milk Bank in Denver where it is stored, pasteurized, processed and dispensed.

"As long as I'm able and as long as I can get to the hospital I'll be there. I love it. And it keeps me busy.
