Medela and Mamava are committed to helping moms successfully feed their babies breast milk, and to do so for as long as they choose. We are also focused on deeply understanding and sharing the experiences of working, breastfeeding moms. We use these important insights in many ways, including to champion improvements for women and to offer guidance for employers to help them better support their breastfeeding and pumping employees.

Please find information below from surveys we have conducted with working mamas who shared their thoughts and feedback on the working + breast milk feeding experience.
