How it works:
Step one: Milk Collection
The process begins once you receive your kit. Since the nutritional content of your milk can change throughout each pumping session, Lactation Lab recommends collecting a small amount of milk as you pump throughout the day. Your kit includes everything needed to prepare and ship your sample including prepaid shipping within the USA.
Step two: Lab Analysis
Once your sample is received, it's processed in Lactation Lab's state-of-the-art lab facility. Results for Basic or Standard Kits are available in about a week. Premium kits require up to three weeks to fully process the additional fatty acid and toxin tests included.
Step three: Your Results
Once testing is completed, a full PDF report with your lab results and dietary recommendations is immediately emailed to you, explaining the importance of each measurement and suggestions for how to help improve the quality of your milk. Your PDF report can easily be shared with your doctor, lactation consultant, doula or other healthcare providers.

The Premium Kit tests for the same nutritional content as the basic kit, but additionally includes levels of Calcium, Iron, Vitamins A, C and B-12, DHA and screening for the presence of environmental toxins Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead and Mercury in your milk. You may optionally add testing for Silicone (measured as Silicon), Platinum and Aluminum if you are concerned about risk factors associated with breast implants and chemotherapy drugs. Made in the USA
