HMBANA believes in a world where all infants have access to human milk through support of breastfeeding and use of pasteurized donor human milk.

The Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) and its 27 nonprofit human milk bank members reached new heights in 2018, with donor human milk distribution at almost 6.5 million ounces dispensed to fragile babies throughout Canada and the US.

The new 2019 edition and fourth edition of HMBANA’s, “Best Practice for Expressing, Storing and Handling Human Milk in Hospitals, Homes, and Child Care Settings” is now available for purchase.

This guide provides recommendations on expressing, storing, and handling human milk based on peer-reviewed scientific evidence, and, where that is lacking, expert opinion. It includes ten sections, plus eight additional appendices.
