Breastfeeding
Abstract
This pamphlet explains the steps to hand express breast/chest milk (take milk from your breasts/chest). It is also called "manual expressing". Hand expression takes practice. It is important to learn how to hand express breast/chest milk in the first hours after your baby is born. Hand expressing helps you make milk and helps your milk come in (also called milk let-down) when you first start to breast/chest feed your baby. A video is listed to help you with the basics. Instructions for how to store your breast/chest milk are also given.
