If ever any doubt about the proper storage of breastmilk, the CDC is a great resource, as it should be regularly updated if/when new science comes to the table. Take a look!

I field many, many questions about pumping from parents, but a lesser known topic that I'd love families to ask about - hand expression! If you forget your pump or it malfunctions, if you find yourself in an emergency situation without power or without your baby, if you just need some "relief" from feelings of fullness or discomfort, hand expression is a useful skill to have for every breastfeeding parent!

I love all the videos from Global Health Media. Here is a fantastic one on hand expression...

I want to make sure everyone knows that I am able to get insurance coverage for some plans (up to 6 sessions or beyond, if needed!) through my connection with The Lactation Network!

What is wonderful about this is that I can do things like visit a family prenatally to plan ahead, see a family multiple times and tweak care plans each time, follow up for visits related to pumping or planning to go back to work, and more. I can follow these families throughout their journeys, at no out of pocket cost to them. TLN is always working to bring more plans on board as well, so hopefully even more coverage as time goes on? Please share with your networks, or, if you are a family who has seen me under TLN, use those follow-ups!
