Expression of Breast Milk

Lactating women can express breast milk, by hand or using a breast pump. You may need to express breast milk if: 
  • Your baby is not well enough to breastfeed.
  • Your baby is not drinking well from the breast.
  • You are separated from your baby.
  • To increase your milk supply.
  • To collect and store breast milk to be used at a later time.
