Mother’s own milk vs. donor milk for preterm infants
November 17, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Presented by Dr. Hans van Goudoever on Tuesday, Nov 17, 2020.
When mother’s own milk is not available, donor human milk is a good alternative. However, processing the milk, including the multiple freeze and thaw processes and pasteurization does affect the quality of milk. Many differences in processing exists between milk banks, across countries, also in processes that clearly affect the quality. This presentation will give an update on the latest evidence on the efficacy of donor milk, compared to own mother’s milk, including the newest data on SARS-CoV-2 and human donor milk.
