Is it possible to express breast milk prior to a baby's birth in case you have a C-section and then risk the staff giving the baby formula while you're still in the operating theatre?

If you are alredy leaking colostrum then i guess you could try

and express it. Your milk may or may not be through yet. I know

with my milk it didnt come through until 4 days after giving birth.

Dont worry about the nurses giving your baby formula they cannot do

it without you signing a form giving them permission. I would just

wait until your baby is out wether you have to have a C Section or

not, and go from there. Trying to express now will only hurt you,

because there is hardly anything to express.
