Hassle-free Milk Storage and Shipping Available

Courtesy of Merck Animal Health

Merck Animal Health is proud to support mothers looking to attend WVC's Annual Conference by partnering with Milk Stork! Milk Stork's services allow nursing participants traveling to Las Vegas the ability to cool, ship or carry their breastmilk hassle-free!

Milk Stork ships packing materials and a pharmaceutical-grade cooler in advance so nursing mothers have the necessary supplies when they arrive in Las Vegas for Annual Conference. Milk Stork kits often include breast milk storage bags, a refrigerated box for packing and an optional tote. Nursing mothers can drop the cooler off at a hotel front desk or a FedEx shipping location (already pre-addressed/paid) when ready to be overnighted to their baby. Nursing mothers who don't need to overnight their milk can choose to carry their milk home in a TSA-approved tote bag, which can keep milk cold for over 60 hours!

If you're interested in using this complimentary service (thanks, Merck Animal Health!) please place orders at least 2 business days before Annual Conference to ensure that your cooler(s) arrive on time!
