  • As in you havent had baby yet? I dont know for sure but I know that any kind of nipple stimulation can cause contractions. I would ask your doctor.

  • It is not recommended. (unless you are still nursing your first). The nipple stimulation can cause contractions, and you won't get much out anyway. It won't help you in any way to pump prior to delivery. Just nurse/pump when the baby comes. May I ask why you are thinking of doing this?

  • For the 1st baby? or the one your exspecting? your milk later in Pregnancy turns back too colostrum so you might not have milk
    right now. Nipple stimulation can cause contractions so might not be a good idea also.
