Starting to express
Starting to express explains why expressing might be necessary, including the physiological reasons it should start as soon as possible after the birth of the baby. There are shots of newborn babies including baby Samuel receiving phototherapy on a ‘billibed’. The footage explains and illustrates the size of a baby’s tummy and shows shots of expressed breastmilk in various sized syringes and containers and ends with a shot of twins with nasogastric tubes in their cot.
