Human Milk Banking - Information for Doctors

Human milk banks collect, screen, process and distribute donated human milk to meet the specific medical needs of individuals for whom it is prescribed. In the absence of the infant’s own mother’s milk, donor milk offers many of the benefits of human milk for the infant, including optimal nutrition, easy digestibility, and immunologic protection against many organisms and diseases. Human milk also contains growth factors that can protect immature tissue, promote maturation (particularly in the GI tract), and promote healing of tissue damaged by infection. Common reasons for prescribing human milk include prematurity, allergies, feeding/formula intolerances, immunologic deficiencies, post-operative nutrition, infectious diseases, and inborn errors of metabolism.
