The award winning women’s technology company that brought you the first bluetooth pelvic floor trainer is back and ready to transform breastfeeding for modern mothers. The Elvie breast pump is here and its silent, wireless, lightweight and amazing. This pump makes it possible to pump on your own terms any and everywhere! Elvie boasts thatyou can lead the meeting, get outside for some fresh air or simply enjoy some peace and quiet… all while you pump – hands-free!
The Elvie pump first made headlines after being worn by model Valeria Garcia on the catwalk for London Fashion Week last September. The mother of two had just recently given birth to her son, Anton, at the time. The pump is ergonomically designed and fits comfortably inside your bra. Its also the quietest on the market, compared to its direct competitor Willow, which debuted first. Tania Boler, CEO and founder of Elvie, explained, “When it comes to breast pumps, the future is wearable. In two years’ time, most of the shelves with breast pumps will look completely different.”
A portable and lightweight breast pump is essential for the modern mother and hands-free is revolutionary. The World Health Organization recommends that babies breastfeed exclusively for the first two years of life, but with 1 in 4 women in the US returning to work 10 days after giving birth, and many mothers with some sort of parental leave, returning to work within four months after giving birth- women need solutions. Women are relegated to pumping in office cubicles, bathrooms and while working when they can’t get away to pump. Breast pumps that improve mobility and flexibility could help families and working mothers‘ careers alike. Since it’s free of cords, and multiple parts its easy to clean and easy to transport.
A single Elvie pump goes for $279, while a double costs for $499. It is available in three breast shield sizes (21mm, 24mm, and 28mm), all of which are transparent. The design features a hub containing the pump mechanism, along with a reusable container that catches the milk attaching below it. The container holds over 150 mL of liquid gold. And just like it’s sister product, the Pelvic Trainer, the Elvie Pump also comes with an app that tracks your milk production in real time and allows you to keep track of all pumping history. The Elvie Pump is responsive, it detects the sensation of the let down reflex and modifies its suction to accommodate the milk flow.
Elvie prides themselves on approaching problems as women and solving them as engineers, scientists and designers, starting with a real need and innovating around it.
The product has received rave reviews from its users, with some exclaiming the device “gave me my life back!” and others writing that it is “worth every penny.”
