This pamphlet explains the steps to hand express breast milk. Hand expression is a learned skill. It will get easier with practice. A video is listed to help you with the basics. Instructions for how to bring your breast milk to the hospital are given. If you notice any cramping in your uterus when hand expressing, it is very important to stop and talk with your doctor before starting again. This is rare. It is safe to keep breastfeeding your older child.
