The Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) mobilizes the healing power of donor milk by accrediting nonprofit milk banks in the US and Canada and setting international guidelines for pasteurized donor human milk. Find out more.
Our 27 members help mothers donate their extra breast milk for use by fragile infants as medicine. Our efforts ensure that the process is evidence-based and clinically sound. Together, we advocate for donor milk as a universal standard of care, regardless of ability to pay.
Donate or receive milk.
Including donor milk in prenatal education helps teach parents their options. By the time donor milk is needed, a newborn might be sick and parents might be exhausted and stressed out. Knowing about milk banking ahead of time can help.
HMBANA has a new look. Our new website, logo and tagline are designed to communicate our core value of promoting a world where all infants have access to pasteurized donor human milk.
