Antenatal Expression of Colostrum
This item is currently being updated and reprinted and will be available from mid-March.
Mothers start to produce colostrum (early milk) while pregnant. Learning to express colostrum during pregnancy is a useful skill for all mothers. There are also benefits to saving expressed colostrum if your baby is likely to need special care after birth.

"it was so great to take this to my midwife at the diaband clinic and they even gave me some sterile pots to collect the colostrum in. I'm so determined to breastfeed this time and keep my newborn with me straight after birth. i feel this leaflet really helps me see what's possible."
