The National Human Milk Bank in the Netherlands was founded in 2011. We supply safe donor human milk to infants born at a gestational age < 30 weeks, up to 32 weeks of post-conceptional age. Those preterm infants are hospitalized at 5 different NICU’s in Amsterdam (@ Emma Children’s Hospital, Amsterdam UMC locations Vumc and AMC), in Nijmegen (UMC Radboud), in Rotterdam (Erasmus MC- Sophia) and in Maastricht (MUMC+). The upcoming months we will start supplying the NICU’s in Veldhoven, Zwolle and Groningen as well.
