Technology Support Partner - Endorsed by the Australian Breastfeeding Association
ABA is delighted to announce the renewal of our major partnership with Ardo, distributed by JB Medical Supplies. This partnership includes endorsement of the Ardo Carum hospital-grade pump and Calypso personal pump
Rigorously Tested by the Australian Breastfeeding Association
An expert working group, including Breast Pump Working Group members, ABA Director, the Manager Breastfeeding Information & Research, and the Senior Manager Income Development & Marketing was established and developed the evaluation process and survey. A group of breastfeeding women were asked to trial the Ardo personal (Calypso) and hospital-grade (Carum) breast pumps to express breastmilk either in hospital or at home. Their babies ranged in age from 1 day to 6 months. The women used the pumps for a variety of reasons: to stimulate a supply for a premature baby or a baby in NICU; to increase their supply; to allow others to care for baby; or to build stash for when they returned to work.
- 100% of women considered the quality of the pump either good or excellent
- 100% of women found the pump easy to use
- 89% of women strongly agreed or agreed that they would recommend this pump to other mothers.
Ardo is in compliance with the WHO Code and strongly promotes breastfeeding.
The WHO Code on the marketing of mother's milk substitutes protects and supports breastfeeding. The Code determines how mother's milk substitutes may be marketed without endangering the practice of breastfeeding. The International Code makes reference to each product which is marketed as a partial or total replacement for mother’s milk, including feeding bottles and teats. Ardo is completely committed to observing absolutely each and every WHO Code.
Vacuum Seal Closed System
All Ardo breast pumps include pump sets that have a Closed System (Vacuum Seal Technology). This technology ensures that there is a total barrier between the breastmilk and any pathogenic agents. “Vacuum Seal” guarantees protection of the breast, breast milk and the breast pump against contamination. There is no danger of cross contamination, even when Ardo breast pumps are being used by several mums, for example when being shared in a hospital environment.
Over the years, we've collected a number of awards for our breast pumps, including Mumii, Gentle Parenting and Made for Mums. We are particularly proud of our Mumsnet awards, The Calypso has been a ‘Mumsnet Best’ for five years and is currently breast pump of the year, all voted for by parents.
Recommended by Midwives
As part of a large-scale Ardo midwife test, we asked 1,000 midwives to put our Calypso Double Plus to the test. We then asked the experts for their opinion by means of a comprehensive questionnaire. After 8 weeks, we had received detailed feedback from 815 testers. The result confirms the quality of the double breast pump: 97% of midwives recommend the Calypso Double Plus.
