Antenatal Colostrum Expressing Kit
Get your breastfeeding journey started with Made to Milk's new Antenatal Colostrum Expressing Kit!
Antenatal Expressing is the act of manually expressing breastmilk during pregnancy. The expressed milk is then refrigerated or frozen and may be used to feed your baby after birth. While some babies latch directly to the breast after birth there may be instances that this is not possible. This is when having prepared expressed colostrum can be helpful!
Situations where expressed colostrum can be beneficial include but not limited to:
-Cesarean or Complicated Birth - Mothers may be separated for some time after surgery/birth while they recover. It can be helpful to offer expressed colostrum after birth until baby and mother can be united and breastfeeding established.
Diabetes - Colustum after birth can help stabilise a baby's blood sugar levels
Premature baby or other health complications - Sometimes babies are born with health conditions that prevent them from latching to the breast afterbirth. Having expressed milk on hand prevents the need for formula until baby is able to latch to the breast.
