The one thing all moms have in common is unanswered questions. With every pregnancy and new additions to the family, you’re going to have steps you haven’t taken before. Medela has a great program to help erase some of the guesswork from an area you don’t want to question- getting your baby the nutrition he or she needs.
Medela is a highly trusted brand in the breastfeeding community, offering a wide range of supplies from breast pumps and bottles, to lanolin and bra pads. Medela’s Breastfeeding University is a series of 10 short (5-12) minute online courses designed to help prepare you to breastfeed your baby. Each class is online, mainly audio, and followed by a brief quiz. The course in its entirety is 2 hours and 30 minutes, and costs only $25.00. If purchased through Aeroflow Breastpumps, you will also receive a coupon after completing the breastfeeding course.
You can also find a wealth of useful information on breastfeeding and pumping by reading Medela’s Human Milk Magazine. There is a chart to show you how to size your breast shields to your body, steps on community support and outreach, a wonderful article explaining why breast milk is so vital in the NICU, and much more!
If you’re concerned about how you will continue to breastfeed once you go back to work, or just on the go, Aeroflow Breastpumps can help you obtain a breast pump through your insurance company (often at no out-of-pocket cost to you), and offers a wide selection of Medela breast pumps, and pumping supplies. Simply complete our Qualify Through Insurance form and let our Breastpump Specialists take care of the rest!
One of our specially trained representatives will verify your insurance, contact your physician to obtain your breast pump prescription, and contact you within 3-5 business days to discuss your coverage and breast pump options.
Medela’s Breastfeeding University is great for moms on the go- there is no time limit as to when the course should be completed. You can move and learn at your own pace, and each class has a “handouts” dropdown including even more great information! So wherever you are in building your family, in your first trimester or on your third child, Medela’s goal is to help navigate you through giving your baby the best nutrition (breast is best, after all), and to be as prepared as possible.
