Wimmera Mallee, Vic : Breast pumps

Primary tabs

The Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) hires electric breast pumps for mothers to express milk for their baby.

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are aware of the need for additional health measures when hiring breast pumps. We are also aware that mothers will still need to use pumps to express milk for their babies.

We now have updated guidelines for interactions with families and the cleaning of our pumps. These include:

All breast pumps for hire are hospital-grade. They are available for short or long term hire.

Medela Symphony

Breastpump information

Our Group owns a Medela Symphony, which has its home in the Barwon Region.  Our  Group's distances and difficulty in  many mums getting to Horsham has meant that we decided to lend our pump to another Australian Breastfeeding Association Region where is was needed.  If you need to hire a hospital grade electric pump, please ring Katie 03 5382 4010 or Pixie 03 5523 7460 and we can see what can be arranged.

 

.  If you are interested in long-term hire  (that is more than a month's hire)  of this pump, please contact Katie, our counsellor based in Horsham, or Pixie, based in Portland, and we can discuss the logistics with you.
