I'm new to this forum and don't know if i have posted in the right place, apologies if I haven't, can anyone help me to answer my question.
I am 39 weeks pregnant, lactating like it is going out of fashion, have been producing ever since the beginning of pregnancy.
I am very keen to give baby my milk, however the thought of letting him latch on (bad experience with my first) makes me feels physically sick and makes my skin crawl (I feel sad that I feel like this) however my midwife came up with the idea of extracting and feeding from bottle from birth.
However what I want to know is, can I extract my milk before baby is born, so that I can get an adequate supply going ???????? I have opted for a home birth and the midwife said she wont leave till he has fed, and i don't know if I will be in a position to extract straight away.
Any thoughts or the answer would be much appreciated.
