Donor human milk

DHM, is expressed “breast milk that is obtained from a milk bank” (Rasmussen et al. 2017). The breast milk has been expressed by a mother with excess milk supply for her own child, often a term birth and at a later stage of lactation. The milk is freely given to be fed to another child. The donor human milk is pasteurised and frozen until use and is in most cases intended for preterm infants (Weaver et al. 2019)
