HOW THE MILKIFY SERVICE WORKS
YOUR FROZEN BREAST MILK
IS DELIVERED TO MILKIFY
Depending on your location, we have several options for getting your frozen milk (stored in lactation bags) delivered to us:
Shipping: We ship you a specialized insulated cooler and priority overnight return label. You pack the cooler and send it back.
Courier Pick-up & Kiosk Drop-Off: These services are available for Houston, Texas-area residents only.
WE freeze-dry and package your breast milk powder
Each lactation bag of milk that Milkify receives is individually tracked and freeze-dried using a contactless and 100% chemical-free process.
The breast milk powder from each lactation bag is then vacuum sealed in individual high barrier bags, which allows for a 3 year shelf-life with no further refrigeration/freezer storage needed.
Your freeze-dried breast milk is mailed back to you.
Your breast milk powder is shipped back to your home address. The turnaround time depends on the size of your order, but most orders are able to be shipped back within 7-10 business days.
Your breast milk powder can be used for bottle preps (simply mix with warm, purified water) or it can be incorporated into solid foods anytime for a nutritional boost even after weaning.
