Happy World Breastfeeding Week!
This year’s theme is “Empower Parents, Enable Breastfeeding,” which is something that we at EHCS support and celebrate every day with both our customers and our employees (both moms and dads!). We join the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) in vowing to protect, promote and support breastfeeding through:
• Parental social protection policies and legislation
• Parent-friendly workplaces in both formal and informal sectors
• Parent-friendly values and gender-equitable social norms
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 starts Aug. 1 and is open until 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.
