Medela Helps Working Moms by Providing Free Milk Shipping
For over 50 years, Medela has advocated for breastfeeding parents, and through our program Kin - Healthy Returns for New Moms we remain committed to improving the breast milk pumping experience and support when working parents return to their job after the birth of a child.
We are proud to announce a new Medela initiative to further support breastfeeding mothers who are working away from their babies. The #MedelaMailMyMilk program was created to help breastfeeding mothers overcome the challenges of balancing work and breastfeeding while spending time away from their baby. Medela will sponsor one new mom from the USA each month from May through the end of the year by providing each with an estimated three months of milk shipping through our partnership with Milk Stork.
Read more about our first recipient, Lieutenant JG Kourtney Daughters, NC, USN, who experienced unexpected challenges when she made the difficult decision to continue breastfeeding while working 3,000 miles away from her baby at a military hospital. We are so happy to share this story and initiative as another example of how Medela is championing support for working, breastfeeding parents.
