Designed to transport frozen breast milk from surrogate to baby; forward-thinking, family-oriented companies now offering new bundle as an employee benefit
PALO ALTO, Calif., April 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Known globally as a saving grace for lactating people looking to ship breast milk home to baby, Milk Stork today announced its Stash Surrogacy Bundle. The world’s first breast milk shipping company is continuing its mission to innovate and provide support to all parents who want to provide breast milk to their babies. Milk Stork has worked with forward-thinking corporations on its Surrogate Breast Milk Shipping Program, and today announced its availability to individual families and all employers, from small and medium businesses to large corporations.
Gestational surrogates provide an incredible gift of helping parents bring their babies into the world. Following birth, many gestational surrogates generously continue to provide breast milk to the families," said Kate Torgersen, founder and CEO, Milk Stork. "With the rise of surrogacy in the U.S., creating an easy-to-use, breast milk shipping solution specific to the needs of surrogates and families was a logical next step. We’re proud to be working with forward-thinking, family-oriented companies who believe in our mission to support all new parents."
Early adopters of the Stash Surrogacy Bundle include:
- Premier Research
- Red River Technology
- Career Builder
- Procore Technologies
Emily Rhomberg, Vice President, Total Rewards, Cars.com said: "Working moms shouldn’t have to choose between taking care of their babies and traveling. With 40% of our leaders and 45% of our employee population identifying as a woman, partnering with Milk Stork is a fantastic benefit that allows working mothers at Cars.com Inc. to feel comfortable being away from their children knowing they can still take care of them. Another benefit of our partnership with Milk Stork is the support the company provides Cars.com’s LGBTQIA+ families with surrogate breast milk shipping. Family comes first here at Cars.com and Milk Stork allows us to provide valuable services that benefit our employees and their families."
