The Hearts Milk Bank CIC

Donor breast milk (DBM) is used to enhance the chances of survival and long-term health of sick and premature babies who have no access to maternal milk. There is currently a lack of equitable access to DBM across the UK. The HMB will also establish a first-of-its-kind research biobank to enable novel studies, collaborating with scientists across nutritional analysis, cancer research, microbiomics, and optimal donor milk usage. Surplus revenue will support local perinatal services.

The Hearts Milk Bank will provide a consistent source of safe, screened donor breastmilk to neonatal units across London and the southeast.
