Earlier this year, Medela LLC, the #1 recommended breast pump brand, launched several new products designed to support moms and their partners during pregnancy, after birth and throughout mom’s breast milk feeding journey. These products include: the new research-based PersonalFit Flex breast shields, 24/7 LC (a membership service that offers Lactation Support), a Maternity Belly Band, and a Maternity & Nursing Pillow.
- PersonalFit Flex Breast Shields:These new Breast Shields are aimed to help moms pump over 11% more breast milk faster, and are designed to support mom’s breast milk supply regardless of breast shape or size. With four-way fit, the unique oval-shaped shield adapts to mom’s natural shape and helps her find the pumping position that works best. The PersonalFit Flex Breast Shield is currently offered in four sizes, 21 mm, 24 mm, 27 mm, and 30 mm and works with all Medela breast pumps.
- 24/7 LC: 24/7 LC is a membership service available through the MyMedela app, offering moms live support with instant video connection to a professional lactation consultant anytime they need it. Calls are typically answered in less than 30 seconds, and users have access 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Moms can get the answers they need on their schedule any time they have a question or issue related to breast milk feeding. Understanding that the first month of breastfeeding is a critical time for moms and babies, Medela is offering free 30-day access to 24/7 LC with the purchase of Sonata® and Freestyle® and discounted 30-day access included with the purchase of Pump in Style® Advanced breast pump. Additionally, Medela is offering a 25 percent discount for 24/7 LC offered through The Moms’ Room. Moms can continue beyond the 30 days for as long as she needs. 24/7 LC memberships are available in one ($79), three ($117) and 12-month ($156) increments, during which time lactation support calls are unlimited.
- Maternity Belly Band:The Maternity Belly Band (MSRP $19.99), available in black and white, provides comfort and relief in sensitive areas with seamless, supportive interknit technology and breathable material. Designed for moms in their second trimester, the Maternity Belly Band has reinforced panels around the back and lower abdomen to provide gentle relief and support. The extra-stretchy panel across the front fits snug while also providing room for a growing belly. The Maternity Belly Band can also be used to cover and extend clothing that has become too tight or short.
- Maternity & Nursing Pillow:The Maternity & Nursing Pillow (MSRP: $69.99) is uniquely designed with adaptability, flexibility and quality to be a comfort companion for moms throughout pregnancy and after birth, eliminating the need for separate prenatal and postpartum products. The micro-pearl filling keeps cool and allows for noiseless adjustment and undisturbed sleeping and feeding. The Maternity & Nursing Pillow provides restful and supportive relaxation, allowing mom to take care of her body and provide breast milk for baby. Plus, it’s super light, so it’s easy to carry from one room to the next – because we all know babies want to eat now!
