Happy World Breastfeeding Week!
Technically World Breastfeeding Week ends today, but we celebrate it every day through our commitment to our customers and to our employees. This year’s theme “Empower Parents, Enable Breastfeeding” is a great guiding principle for all of us as we all bear responsibility to nurture family-friendly work environments (and who are we kidding? making sure our home environments are family-friend is important too!).
Research shows that breastfeeding provides a healthier start for babies, and we recognize that employers play a big role in how long moms can breastfeed. Family-friendly policies and high-quality, insurance-covered breast pumps make it easier for working moms to provide breast milk to their babies — that’s why we are partnering with Medela in a giveaway of a premium Medela Freestyle breast pump. The giveaway closes tonight at 11:59pm, Wednesday, Aug. 7; the winner will be announced on Thursday, Aug. 8.
The Medela Freestyle breast pump is perfect for the mom on-the-go (and what mom isn’t on the go?!). It’s small and lightweight, and when paired with the right bra, is hands-free, making it easier for mom to multitask. Ideal for moms who pump several times daily, the Freestyle — with a rechargeable battery — features Medela’s patented 2-Phase Expression™ technology that is proven to produce more milk in less time. Enter the giveaway below, and if you’re currently expecting, make sure to apply for a FREE insurance-covered breast pump today. The Freestyle pump is typically an upgrade pump only available to commercial insurances, but we also carry many breast pumps (including Medela) that are usually covered at 100%.
