Is Hands-Free In-Bra Pumping Effective? - Donna Geddes, Professor, DMU, PostGrad Dip (Sci), Ph.D.

Wearable or Hands-free in-bra pumping is popular amongst women who seek flexibility and/or efficiency of milk removal.  However, this new modality of expression involves several design feature considerations that may have the potential to impact performance compared to traditional pumping systems, although to date, the efficiency and effectiveness of this modality have not been tested. In order to address this gap, we have developed new protocols to explore hands-free in-bra pumping and used these methods to investigate the impact on the efficacy of a hands-free in-bra double pumping system, including effectiveness (volume expressed, percentage available milk removed, how well the breast was drained), milk ejection characteristics (timing stimulation of milk ejection and milk flow), nipple changes (nipple temperature, and size) and comfort ratings. Furthermore, we will present data on the increased flexibility of maternal mobility, perceptions, and confidence of the pumping experience.
- Describe the potential factors that impact milk removal with an electric breast pump
- Identify which measurements of hands-free in-bra pumping reflect effectiveness of milk removal
- Describe the maternal perceived advantages of hands-free in-bra pumping
