Colostrum harvesting is when the first milk (colostrum) is hand expressed from the breast during pregnancy (starting at around 37 weeks pregnant) and frozen for use after birth.
Our infant feeding team provide free hand expressing kits and support to help you harvest colostrum when you are pregnant. Research shows that those who hand express in pregnancy are more confident and better prepared to breastfeed their babies. This early breast milk is perfectly tailored for your own baby’s immune system.
