Colostrum Collection Workshop
We offer colostrum collection workshops for parents that would like to learn more about how to express and store colostrum in preparation for their baby/babies arrival. Collecting colostrum can be a useful tool for all women, however it may be particularly helpful for women with special circumstances, such as gestational diabetes, planned caesarean, multiple pregnancy or cleft lip/palate.
For some mothers, colostrum collection can ensure your baby will start life without the need for formula supplementation. Colostrum contains vital immunological properties and helps to colonise your baby’s gut with healthy bacteria that protect against allergy and disease. After you have collected colostrum, it can be frozen, ready for your baby after birth, should they need it.
Expressing your colostrum is recommended from 36 weeks gestation.
