If you are questioning your milk supply and/or you feel that the pump you are using is not helping, this may be the option for you. Just like everything, a breastpump is not one size fits all. Mother's respond differently to a breastpump depending on their milk supply and experience. What works for one mother may not work for another.
This research based breastpump by Medela is the only pump to initiate, support and increase a mother's milk supply. It is ideal for frequent and long term pumping.
You may be wondering why this pump was not an option when you receive your pump through insurance- the process through insurance is complicated, time consuming and not cost effective.
Some breastpump makers say that they are "hospital grade" but this phrase is meant to mean the pump is a closed system. Meaning there is no risk of contamination of the motor. The Medela Symphony is the highest suctioning pump available, and also the most comfortable.
If you are interested in renting a pump please contact me.
Rental fee is $2.50/day.
