Hand expressing breastmilk

Learning how to express breastmilk by hand is a great technique to learn as you don't need any special equipment and it is relatively easy to learn. The benefits of hand expressing breastmilk include:

  • It is free
  • You don't need any expensive or cumbersome pumps
  • It is convenient, you can do it any time, anywhere
  • It stimulates greater breasmilk production

This video by Dr. Jane Morton demonstrates how easily hand expression can be taught to mothers. I highly recommend watching this video. Please note when you click the image to play the video a new page will open up. Please close page after viewing.
