The 2019 Fourth Edition of Best Practice for Expressing, Storing and Handling Human Milk in Hospitals, Homes, and Child Care Settings is now available.
HMBANA publishes three guides that contribute to milk banking operations. They are used by member milk banks, client hospitals, public health institutions, and milk banking institutions globally.
These publications form the backbone of the accreditation process, which is key to ensuring an ethically sourced, equitably distributed, and clinically sound supply of pasteurized donor human milk. When a nonprofit milk bank is a HMBANA member, they are guided by the standards and ethics set forth in these publications.
