Hand expression is an age-old strategy of removing milk with the pump that's built right into your badass body—your own hands.
On its own or with pumping, hand expression may help increase output and maximize production. Even more, learning to hand express gives you freedom, since you can extract milk whenever you want, wherever you are. I truly believe it is the breast-ever method for removing your invaluable liquid gold (besides, ya know, babies).
At TheMilkinMama, we use our own Go Milk Yourself method to transform the way we view our bodies. We teach lactating parents all over the world a unique menu of massage and compression strategies designed to make hand expression accessible to anyone. We believe that each of us deserves more freedom, more power, and less stress—and we're here to help make that your truth, too.
Here at TheMilkinMama, you can learn to Go Milk Yourself from a book, a video, a workshop, or a private session. If you take a private session or workshop, you'll benefit from our long-term online support group, where you can post successes, challenges, and questions to our community of teachers and learners. If this titillating bonus doesn't get you, our love and encouragement will seal the deal. There's no one like us, on the internet or elsewhere, when it comes to teaching and learning about hand expression.
You know yourself best—YOU get to decide how you'd like to learn, and who will be on your team in the short- and long-term.
Thanks for being here. We are so pumped to support you!
