Antenatal (Before Birth) Milk Pumping – preserving your milk for baby & bringing it to the hospital or birth center. Then babe will have your breastmilk if anything happens, even if you die! OK – of course, I’m not ‘preparing’ for THAT extreme – but you never know! Better to have it and donate the milk to fellow birthing moms if you don’t need it after all. In UK and Australia the moms who practice it don’t need it because they already got everything in working order BY pumping before birth.
