    Breast Pumping Directory

    Breast pumping is the use of a machine to extract milk from a new mom's lactating breasts. If you're breastfeeding your baby, chances are you are going to need to pump breast milk. Breast pumping can help boost or bring in your milk supply, relieve pain from engorged breasts, or collect milk for a premature baby or a baby who cannot yet latch onto the breast. If you work outside the home, you can use a breast pump to collect and store your milk for your child's use when you are not around. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about breast pumping, from how to choose a breast pump to when to use a breast pump, and much more.
