Your Breastfeeding Journey Series: Choosing the Right Breast Pump

Choosing the Right Breast Pump

Whether you are a first-time parent or experienced mom, it’s important to have resources and support while choosing a breast pump, and Axia Women’s Health is pleased to make this phase of life easier for the women we serve.

How will I get my breast pump?

Our partners at StorkPump are available to assist moms in getting a 100% insurance-covered double electric breast pump. Their team of breast pump and feeding experts will ensure you have the information needed to make informed decisions. Please note that you will need a prescription to obtain your insurance-covered breast pump, and your Axia Women’s Health provider is prepared to send an electronic script to StorkPump following your 28-week visit. It’s as easy as can be.

What kind of pump should I select?

Double electric breast pumps are by far the most common breast pumps on the market, and deemed desirable by most women. “Double electric pumping” is a term used when a mom can pump both breasts at the same time. This is of course faster and more efficient for mothers, especially those considering breastfeeding exclusively and those who are on-the-go often. However, every woman is different, and we’re pleased to break down the different pumps available in the following flow chart, including the Ameda Joy, Spectra S1, Spectra S2, Spectra S9, Medela In-Style, and Zomee breast pump.

The flowchart below is compiled based on StorkPump’s long-standing experience in supporting moms through their breast pump selection. All questions are easy to answer and range from personal preference and style to experience. This allows all mothers and soon-to-be mothers the ability to easily select the right pump for them. From exciting features like a nightlight and digital display to lightweight and portability options, you’re sure to find a match! And, if you still need help, the lactation experts at StorkPump can gladly assist.

All moms know that holding your baby is an important part of bonding emotionally. But did you know it can also provide physical benefits? Kangaroo Care, a specific form of skin-to-skin contact, can have benefits for both preemies and their parents. Research shows that holding a baby to your bare chest can help regulate the baby's heart rate, breathing, and body temperature as well as promote bonding. To all of the NICU mamas, we see you and salute your strength!

It's true that during pregnancy and around our menstrual cycles our natural balance of progesterone and estrogen can be disrupted. This imbalance can create an ideal environment for Candida fungi, the bacteria involved in yeast infections, to grow. 🤔

Fortunately, several over the counter medications can help the infection clear up within a few days. 💊

But if you're experiencing recurrent infections, it's a good idea to chat with your Axia Women's Health provider. 💬
