Expressing breast milk

Expressing your breast milk can be useful for lots of reasons: 

  • to tempt your baby to go on the breast
  • to help relieve engorgement or release a blocked duct
  • it is also essential if you and your baby are separated for a prolonged period of time.

Expressing your milk can be done by hand or using a pump (either manual or electric). For hand expressing follow this link to watch a short video which explains the technique.
