Referrals are always welcome.

Pumps are available for rent (Symphony™). Medela® Breast Pumps have Autocyle™ action to automatically create suck-release-relax cycles which duplicates, as nearly as possible, a baby's nursing action.

This pump is suitable for every pumping need, including initiating and sustaining milk supply when breastfeeding is not possible. This hospital grade pump uses a personal collection kit, so the parts that touch the breast are new with each rental. Single or double pumping is possible. Double pumping cuts pumping time in half and increases prolactin levels, the hormone that helps maintain milk supply.
