Purchasing Your Breast Pump Through Insurance in Charlotte
Up until recently, nursing mothers were expected to pay out of pocket for breast pumps and breastfeeding accessories. Now, the Affordable Care Act requires most health insurance companies to pay for breast pumps like it does for other medical equipment. To file your insurance we’ll just need a prescription from your doctor, your insurance information and the date of birth of your child (pumps cannot be dispensed until after your baby is born).
Medela Pump in Style Breast Pump
The Pump In Style Advanced by Medela is the #1 Mom-Recommended Breast Pump Brand. This is a daily use double electric breast pump designed for moms who pump several times a day. This option has a built-in pump to the On-the-Go Tote which allows discreet pumping wherever you are and lets you store supplies and keep expressed milk cold even when you’re at work or out running errands.
2-Phase Expression® Technology
Through research, Medela learned that there are two distinct phases of how babies breastfeed.
Stimulation Phase – when babies first go to breast, they use quick, shallow sucks to stimulate milk flow or “let down.”
Expression Phase – after milk flow or “let-down” starts, babies nurse with a slower, deeper suck, bringing out more milk faster.
The Pump in Style offers two modes to mimic each phase of how babies nurse, leading to more efficient, comfortable pumping.
Spectra S1 Breast Pump
Featuring a quiet motor and a built-in night light for nighttime pumping, the Spectra S1 is a portable, rechargeable, closed system breast pump. This pump uses Natural Nursing Technology offers a “massage mode” to mimic how babies nurse before milk begins flowing, has adjustable suction levels to provide a more comfortable milk flow, and back-flow protection which keeps milk from entering tubing and protects it from dangerous bacteria.
