Renting a Breast Pump
If you are likely to be discharged home before your baby, if breastfeeding is not yet established or baby is needing supplemental milk, you will need to consider how you will continue to express breast milk at home.
A double electric breast pump is ideal as double pumping provides greater stimulation for parents who are separated from their baby (as well as saving a lot of time)!
You can rent a double hospital grade pump using the below options. This may be useful if you wish to use the same pump that you used in hospital (Medela at Luton & Dunstable Hospital, Ardo at Bedford Hospital).
