Are you a pregnant mom who will be going back to work after you have your baby? Are you worried about how to pump while working? Do you work with pregnant or breastfeeding women who plan to pump their milk after they go back to work? Do you need more information on pumps and pumping to increase duration of breastfeeding among your clients?

Pumping breastmilk is a very personal behavior for most women. Surveys indicate women want a pump that works quickly, obtains a sufficient quantity of milk from each breast, and does not cause pain. A pump that works for one mom may not work as well for another mom for a variety of reasons. Many mothers have found interventions and techniques that make their pumps work better.

In this three-part book, Marsha Walker, RN, IBCLC, shares information on the history and regulation of breast pumps, the mechanics of pumps, a review of the literature, types of pumps, ways to pump more effectively, flanges, how to choose a pump, pumping protocols, how to troubleshoot problems, and how to deal with low milk supply.

If you want to know more about breast pumps and tips and techniques for pumping more milk, this is the book for you!

In Pumps and Pumping Protocols, the author covers the latest information on how a healthcare professional can help moms navigate the vast, often confusing world of breast pumps and pumping.

This book is broken into three well-written sections. The first section introduces why mothers may pump, why they may not succeed with pumping, and a brief history of pumps and pumping. Of special note is information regarding insurance coverage of breast pumps and how the Affordable Healthcare Act affects this coverage. It also provides the necessary Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes for breast pumps to be covered by insurance. The second section comprehensively reviews pump vacuums, cycles per minute, suction curves, compression, and how hormones play a role in pumping. Also included is a detailed review of the types of pumps available, which healthcare providers will find useful in helping mothers choose a pump.

The last section presents the latest research in simultaneous versus sequential pumping to help healthcare professionals set up protocols to help mothers through pumping issues such as returning to work, pumping for an ill infant, pumping for preterm and late preterm infants. Excellent examples of pumping protocols will help healthcare providers establish protocols, such as pumping for a preterm infant, and plans of care to assist mothers through difficulties during pumping, such as low milk production. This section also covers the latest research on galactogogues.

Marsha Walker has done an excellent job writing this comprehensive book. She has done a thorough job gathering the latest research and making it available all in one place and has included an easy to navigate table of contents and index. The illustrations add nicely to the text, and the easy-to-use charts provide a quick reference for busy healthcare professionals.

Whether you are looking for an inexpensive, comprehensive guide to help mothers through the vast world of pumping or whether you need to update your facility's pumping protocols, this book will prove to be useful.
