Our vision

The Hearts Milk Bank is the UK’s newest milk bank. We aim to bring a new approach to the provision of milk bank services in the UK.

The HMB will offer equity of access to safe and assured supplies of donor human milk to hospitals and community-based clinicians for patients across London and the southeast of England.

As a centre of research, we are planning wide-ranging new programmes of studies into milk banking and human milk.

Our vision is to make a positive contribution to the health outcomes of the premature, sick and vulnerable infants in their care, while positively supporting breastfeeding in our community and beyond.

Donating milk

We are seeking to recruit donors who would like to donate a stock of stored milk, or become an ongoing donor.

If you are a non-smoker, in good health with surplus milk supply, please contact info@heartsmilkbank.org for more information.

Support us

There are many ways to support us at the milk bank:

  1. – If you have expertise in infant feeding and can counsel milk donors
  2. – If you could spare time to help with our administration
  3. – If you have expertise in book-keeping and could donate some time
  4. – If you would like to fundraise for additional pieces of equipment and new projects that will improve milk bank services
  5. – If you would like to join our fantastic team of drivers

Please contact Natalie or Gillian to have a chat.

We are currently fundraising for a range of projects that we will be writing about shortly. You can donate by clicking here!
