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

Breastpump information

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:
* the ABA Breast Pump Hire Officer being well and not having been in contact with anyone who is sick
* options for completing paperwork and payment online
* collecting/returning the breast pump from/to the ABA Breast Pump Hire Officer’s doorstep
* stringent cleaning of returned pumps (Please note that it is standard practice that all mothers hiring our pumps are required to purchase their own milk collection kit which is available to buy at the time of hiring.)
* getting breastfeeding and pumping support via telephone on the Breastfeeding Helpline 1800 686 268
* getting pumping and expressing information from our ABA website at: https://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/bf-info/breastfeeding-and-work/suggestions-using-electric-breast-pump/

Helene is our breast pump hirer. You can contact her at helene.mcgillick@gmail.com

Helene is an ABA volunteer and she will respond as soon as possible. For immediate help with expressing phone the 24/7 Breastfeeding Helpline on 1800 686 268.

Breast pumps require the purchase of a milk collection kit for your personal use. We have Lactaset single collection kits available for purchase when hiring Medela pumps and Carum double collection kits for purchase when hiring Ardo pumps. Our milk collection kits include a copy of the ABA booklet 'Breastfeeding: expressing and storing breastmilk'. 

When hiring, we require a $50 deposit for the Medela and $100 for the Carum pumps. This deposit will be returned to you once the pump is returned in clean and good working order.

Join ABA to take advantage of the member discount, or talk to Helene about membership when you hire.
