  • Renting a hospital-grade pump

    Hospital-grade breast pumps are recommended to help mothers establish and maintain milk supply when their baby is unable to nurse. We offer the Medela Symphony Hospital Grade Pump for rental on a monthly basis. This pump is clinically proven to support the initiation and maintenance of breast milk supply, increase production, and reduce pumping time through faster let-down and milk flow.

    Our pumps come with the pump itself, case, bottle holder and cord to plug in the pump. You'll take the tubing you use in the hospital with you when you rent your pump. Rental requires a $50 deposit and is $80 a month.

  • What about breast health?

    Breastfeeding has many benefits for mom and baby. It can even lower your risk for breast cancer. But you should still see your doctor for routine well-woman care. Mammograms and biopsies can be performed without harming your breastmilk.

    At Baptist Health, we offer comprehensive breast health imaging and care options for every stage of a woman's life.
