A note from the founder of Milkify
I started Milkify with the goal of finding a better way to preserve the nutritional qualities of breast milk long-term. I was particularly interested in saving the beneficial bacteria present in breast milk, which are vital to a healthy baby gut. My background is in gut microbiome research, and I know how important breast milk is to healthy infant development. However, at the time Milkify was founded, I did not yet have a child… After having my first baby, our beautiful girl Arielle, I now appreciate the desire to save every last drop of that hard-earned liquid gold. I struggled through the first year of breastfeeding and pumping, and am grateful to have been able to save my stash in freeze-dried form. I designed our service to be as easy as possible for you to do the same!
