Breast Massage & Pumping Techniques

Many mothers stop breastfeeding due to breast pain or low milk production. The LiquidGoldConcept Lactation Simulation Model is the only breastfeeding simulator that can be used to practice alleviating plugged ducts or engorgement. Health providers can support working mothers by teaching them hands-on pumping techniques with the Lactation Simulation Model.

Example Scenarios

Hands-On Pumping Strategies for Going Back to Work

Many mothers want to know how to efficiently express breast milk while at work so they can continue to breastfeed for at least a year.

Example Scenario: Your patient is four months postpartum and planning on returning to work in two weeks. She wants to learn about efficient pumping strategies and milk storage options to help achieve her goal of breastfeeding for at least two years.

Potential Settings: WIC clinic, outpatient primary care or pediatric office, community group

Lactation Simulation Model Skills: Breast pump setup and flange-sizing, hands-on pumping techniques

Differential Diagnosis for Persistent Breast Pain

Persistent breast pain during lactation can be musculoskeletal, inflammatory, infectious, or even malignant in origin. Performing a careful breast exam and observing a breastfeed to ensure the latch is appropriate are always good first steps.

Example Scenario: Your patient has been experiencing severe breast pain for the last week. While performing a breast exam, you notice that both breasts have multiple lumps, the left nipple is flat and cracked, and one quadrant of the breast is red, warm, and fluctuant.

Potential Settings: Emergency room, primary care or pediatric clinic, WIC office

Lactation Simulation Model Skills: Assessment and management of nipple damage, breast lumps, and breast pain
