Breast Massage and Hand Expression Following Perinatal Loss

We are thrilled to share that a project initiated and collaborated on by Mid-Atlantic Mother’s Milk Bank is now available to all. Our staff has found that there are few resources sensitive to bereaved families regarding infant loss and postpartum engorgement. We contacted Breastfeeding Medicine of Northeast Ohio who had already released an excellent hand expression video, to inquire about modifying the video to meet the special needs of this population. The amazing efforts and dedication of Maya Bolman, RN, IBCLC and Ann Witt, MD, IBCLC, FABM in developing and securing funding for this needed resource are much appreciated. Hopefully you will find this as valuable as we do.
