Antenatal Breast Expression & Colostrum Collection
Expressing colostrum during pregnancy is a subject that is new for many lactation consultants and health care providers. Expectant women begin to produce colostrum in the latter stages of pregnancy; learning to express colostrum during pregnancy for use in the early post partum period is useful skill for all mothers, and can help them build and maintain their milk supply in the early days after childbirth. Use of prenatally collected colostrum in the early post partum period can assist infants with weight gain, help maintain blood sugar levels, and can be an important tool in avoiding temporary formula supplementation. During this session, Annet Mulder will discuss research on this topic, benefits of using this skill and when and how to teach the skill to mothers.
