Maternity Care and Breast Pumping

Grisel Gigato, Lactation Nurse with the Center for Women and Infants at South Miami Hospital, explains if mothers are not able to put their babies directly on the breast, they encourage them and support them with breast pumping. She points out breast milk is nutrition and medicine that mothers are providing and only they can provide for their babies. She also says moms can breast pump next to the inhibitor or crib, so they can look at their babies, which helps in getting more milk.
