Knowledge and adhesion to donation of human milk of women who gave birth in a public hospital

Abstract: Aiming to identify the knowledge of parturients about the human milk donation and its adherence after orientations, 30 parturients were interviewed before and after 15 days of delivery. Regardless of the number of prenatal consultations, the human milk bank was unknown by 53.3% and the donation process by 27%, 90% wanted to donate their milk, but only 30% donated, with no association between desire and practice. The lack of information in prenatal care seems to limit this practice of giving.
