What is this article about?
Antenatal breast expression (ABE) is defined by the Australian Breastfeeding Association as ‘the hand expression and collection of colostrum during pregnancy’. Historically, ABE has been used to help prepare the breasts for postnatal breastfeeding. Today, however, its main value is the storage of colostrum in order to prevent neonatal hypoglycaemia or hasten the production of lactogenesis.
