Summary: Milk banks enable working woman to provide babies with the best nutrition and the most affordable one. Hence, they make it easier for families to thrive preventing them from diverting important income to less beneficial foods. Milk banks have developed as research has provided better understanding of the benefits of breast milk and the preservation of breast milk. Milk banks benefit babies in outpatient and inpatient clinics when either the baby or the mother are unavailable for regular breastfeeding.
Jane Dempster visited a milk bank in Guatemala to document the uptake of milk banks, how these adapt to cultural needs and how they serve communities.
