Ask Us About…Hand Expressing

Ask your midwife about hand expressing.

Did you know that being able to hand express is a really useful skill? Hand expressing can be used to help attachment, relieve engorgement and sort out a blocked duct. It is also the best way to express colostrum (the first milk)

However you are planning to feed your baby, they can really benefit from having colostrum as their first feeds.

Colostrum can be hand expressed in pregnancy and stored in small syringes ready for your baby’s arrival.

Ask your midwife about hand expressing or come along to the Colostrum Collection Drop In on a Thursday afternoon (14:00-16:00) the Parentcraft room at the back of antenatal clinic.

Bumps, Birth and Baby Event

Alice and Caroline had a lovely day on Saturday meeting lots of family’s and pregnancy and birth workers at the Doula UK Bumps, Birth and Baby event in Godalming.

The team shared their stand with Paulette Kerr, project manager for Surrey Heartlands Better Births project. It was wonderful to see so many people taking an interest in the future of Maternity services and the Maternity Transformation Project.

They were gifted with a special visit from Surrey Hills Midwife, Sarah, and her beautiful ten day old daughter Maeve.

Some Bunny Loves You

This birth was also very special for the newest member of our team, Heather, as she supported this family at their last birth as a student an experience that contributed to her joining the team as a qualified midwife.
