Relief of breast engorgement on the Sabbath is a challenge for the Sabbath-observant Jewish client. Many Sabbath laws limit the methods of care for the engorged breastfeeding woman. With a familiarity of the laws of the Sabbath, the health care provider can better address the needs of the engorged Sabbath-observant Jewish woman. In this article, interventions are proposed that mitigate or preclude violation of the Sabbath.
