Should I hand express/pump after 36 weeks to collect colostrum?

There’s no quality scientific evidence that suggests that this is beneficial. Some women who are anxious about breastfeeding may gain confidence by doing this, but just as many women suffer pain, frustration, and unnecessary anxiety by attempting to hand express before the baby is born. The highest quality studies have found no health benefits to baby from having colostrum or milk already available by birth.
