Abstract

More than 80% of mothers express milk at some point during the first 4 months postpartum. Many women rely on breast pumps to establish and maintain lactation particularly when the infant is not able to breastfeed. Proper breast pump fit and use are important to optimize breastmilk supply and prevent injury. As breast pumps continues to evolve and the number of women using them remains a substantial majority, health care professionals need to maintain a thorough understanding of this tool and relevant techniques to help mothers succeed.
