    Default Do you/will you need donated colostrum

    I have been expressing antenatally from 36 weeks pregnant, and I'm now 40 weeks and awaiting the birth of our bub
    I am blessed to have quite a stash of colostrum in the freezer- around 120mls. I am quite certain that my bub will not use anywhere near that amount, if any at all, given I am now expressing 10mls at a time. There is no point me keeping it, as the baby will require more mature breastmilk after the first few days.

    I am wondering if anyone would like to have it? I want to wait until my bub is out and around a week old before I give it away, but if you or someone you know has GDM or can foresee another reason they may require some donated colostrum, give me a buzz.
    I am a 27 year old midwife located in Melbourne, I don't drink or smoke, have a very healthy diet, and clear serology (results available).

    Yep, I always advise women to do it- that way if bubs needs top ups for whatever reason, you can give colostrum rather than formula
