Developed for teaching the techniques for hand expression of breast milk, the trainer was designed in conjunction with the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative, and may be particularly useful for staff training in facilities working towards Baby Friendly accreditation. Ideal as both a teaching and learning tool for midwives, health visitors and other health care practitioners.


Skills Gained:

  • The technique of hand expression mimics the natural stimulation of breast milk during feeding. There are 2 stages to this process:
    • The oxytocin reflex (milk ejection or let down reflex)
    • Compression of the lactiferous sinuses

Product Qualities:

realism
  • The soft foam breast is realistic in shape, texture and proportion, and is warm to the touch
features
  • Incorporates 4 ‘milk’ reservoirs. These mimic the 15-20 lactiferous sinuses of the normal breast. Squeezing the nipple alone does not produce milk

versatility
  • Can be presented in 2 ways: freestanding or held against the body

cleaning
  • Washable using soap and water
safety
  • Contains latex
