Abstract: With this paper we aim to understand the motivations that lead women to donate their milk to milk banks. We’ve made an integrative review using articles collected from PubMed, considering as an inclusive criteria they having defined as an object of study social or motivational aspects of the mothers that have donated milk; we found and analyzed eight articles. There is great variability in the sociodemo graphic characteristics of the mothers. The main motivations for donating are an altruistic feeling and an excess of milk, being important training and informing health professional surrounding the birth process as well as social and familiar support and institutional involvement accompanied by a collection infrastructure to facilitate the convenience of the mothers in the donation.
