Let’s talk about Medela’s new service that is helping moms provide life enhancing breast milk to their baby for as long as they choose. It was created in partnership with Pacify Health, a leading telemedicine service company. Together, they are delivering a unique program for Canadian moms that provides 24 hour per day, 365 days per year lactation support from qualified IBCLCs (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants).
The 24/7 LC™ Service connects moms with IBCLCs via live video so that moms can receive evidence-based support directly on their mobile device, whenever, wherever they need it!! The lactation consultants are on standby around the clock, ready to answer moms’ questions, in English or French, about:
- Establishing lactation
- Overcoming pain
- Improving baby’s latch
- Managing mom’s milk supply
- And so much more!
Moms can access the 24/7 LC service exclusively through the MyMedela® app, downloadable for Apple and Android platforms. The service costs $99 for one month of access, $147 for 3 months of access and $192 for 12 months of access.
However, the Medela Sonata and Freestyle breast pumps include a FREE, unlimited use, one-month membership. The Medela Pump in Style breast pump includes a $39 one-month, unlimited use, membership ($99 value).
Knowing that breastfeeding can be challenging, whether it’s a first pregnancy or not, you can download the MyMedela® app for 24/7 lactation support and advice from the comfort of your home!
