Humans have been sharing their breastmilk for the benefit of other babies for thousands of years. In this presentation, we will be looking at how a baby might have access to human milk if their parent cannot provide it themselves. The history and current practices of milk banking, both for profit and non-profit, will be covered as well as milk sharing.
