A human milk bank collects breast milk from carefully screened donors. The milk is tested, pasteurized, stored and sent out to hospitals or individuals in need. Donor breast milk is available by prescription only and can be prescribed for preemies, babies with failure to thrive, infants with severe allergies or intolerance to formula, patients recovering from gastric or intestinal surgery and many other conditions. Adopted babies can also benefit from donor breast milk.
