The Affordable Care Act states every mother will be given a free breast pump by their insurance company. All mothers are offered a breast pump. There are a variety of different pumps and they all work anywhere from just okay to awesome.
Boston Newborn Care has partnered with Healthy Baby Essentials and will personally provide the order form and hand-deliver the pump to clients. No need to call insurance companies, Healthy Baby Essentials will process the rental quickly and painlessly.
Medela Symphony Breast Pump
The first breast pump with 2-Phase Expression® technology is proven to achieve faster milk ejection and faster milk flow.* More efficient and comfortable. Unique overflow protection. Double or single pumping. One knob control. Whisper-quiet operation. Easy-to-clean. Compatible with Preemie+ technology (Preemie+ Card sold separately).
Featuring the original 2-Phase Expression® technology – found only in Medela breast pumps.
Babies breastfeed in 2 phases:
1. Stimulation Phase – when babies first go to the breast, they suck fast and light to start milk flowing.
2. Expression Phase – after milk flow or “let-down” starts, babies breastfeed with a slower, deeper suck, bringing out more milk faster.

With the 100s of clients, I have counseled and supported I first listen then I offer a suggestion. Have you considered renting the hospital-grade pump? The Medela Symphony perhaps? From my experience, the hospital-grade pump will yield up to 30% more milk at each pumping session.
So many new moms these days agonize over the whole breastfeeding experience. It begins way before the baby is even born. Whenever I ask a new client if they are going to breastfeed, 100% of the time the answer is “I’m going to try”
So those early days and nights with new moms are always stressful. The latch and the moms’ milk supply is the only thing talked about followed by the questions. “Is the baby hungry?” “ Should I try a different hold? “Do I need a different pillow?“ Should I sit in another chair?” It’s an ongoing list of possible reasons why it isn’t going great. Do I need a nipple shield? Will there be nipple confusion? Does my baby have a tongue tie? Tears and frustration are the emotion instead of happiness and contentment.
Finally, it starts to come together. Then after 2 weeks, the mom is ready to pump. Adding another task to their day, throughout the day is daunting. It’s far more frustrating when they do hook up to the breast pump the yield is minimal.
