Frequently Asked Questions

What is a colostrum collector used for?

A colostrum collector is used to harvest and store colostrum, the nutrient-rich first milk produced by mothers in the early days of breastfeeding. The Midwives Own Brand Colostrum Collectors are designed to capture every precious drop of colostrum to feed to your baby.

How do you collect colostrum?

To collect colostrum, gently hand express your breast and use the Midwives Own Brand Colostrum Collector to catch the colostrum. The wide 30mm port makes it easy to capture every drop. You can then feed the colostrum to your baby straight from the collector or store it in our colostrum cooler bag.

Does collecting colostrum increase milk supply?

Collecting colostrum can help stimulate your breasts and may encourage milk production. Regular expression in the early days can signal your body to produce more milk, helping to establish a healthy milk supply.

Can collecting colostrum induce labor?

While nipple stimulation from collecting colostrum can release oxytocin, which may cause mild contractions, it is generally safe to collect colostrum late in pregnancy. However, if you have any concerns or a high-risk pregnancy, consult with your healthcare provider before beginning colostrum collection. If you are expecting, check our full range of Pregnancy essentials.

Is it safe to take colostrum every day?

Yes, it is safe and beneficial for your baby to receive colostrum every day in the early days after birth. Colostrum is rich in antibodies and nutrients essential for your baby’s health and development.

How long should I collect colostrum for?

You can start collecting colostrum a few weeks before your due date and continue in the first few days postpartum until your mature milk comes in. Use the Midwives Own Brand Colostrum Collectors to ensure you have enough to support your baby’s initial nutritional needs.

Is colostrum richer than breast milk?

Yes, colostrum is often referred to as "liquid gold" because it is richer in proteins, antibodies, and essential nutrients compared to mature breast milk. It provides critical immune protection and helps your baby’s digestive system adapt to feeding. If you have just had a baby, check out our full range of Postpartum & Newborn essentials.

When should I start collecting colostrum?

You can start collecting colostrum in the late third trimester, typically it is generally safe to collect from 36 weeks of pregnancy, if advised by your healthcare provider. The Midwives Own Brand Colostrum Collectors & Cooler Bag make it easy to collect, store, and feed colostrum to your baby during the early days of breastfeeding.
