Harvesting Colostrum

What is colostrum harvesting?

Colostrum harvesting involves collecting colostrum via a syringe from 37 weeks of pregnancy, which can then be stored and frozen ahead of your baby’s birth. Colostrum is the breast milk that your baby receives for the first few days after birth when you are breastfeeding.
