Why Medela?

Medela Symphony is ideal for long-term frequent pumping needs and is designed to support working mothers. It is also used by mothers who experience breastfeeding problems and by first-time mothers unsure of their pumping goals. This breastpump is absolutely hygienic as there is no contact between breastmilk and the pumping system. A pump collection kit must be purchased for use with the pump, each user will need to have their own kit to avoid contamination.

Symphony breastpumps can be used for single or double pumping with these accessory kits. Double pumping reduces pumping time and promotes an increase in milk production and is widely recommended for all users. Double pumping can help increase prolactin, the milk-producing hormone.

Key Features

  • Hospital-grade electric pump
  • Single or double pumping
  • With 2-Phase Expression Technology
  • Overflow protection

What is 2-Phase Expression Technology?

2-Phase Expression Technology simulates a baby’s natural nursing rhythm more precisely than any other system. It is known that babies change the way they suckle at a mother’s breast during breastfeeding. Initially, they suckle rapidly to stimulate the Milk Ejection Reflex (MER) and induce “let-down”. Once the milk starts flowing, the speed of the baby’s sucking decreases for the actual feeding phase.

This is the only research-based breastpump technology to mimic a baby’s natural nursing rhythm. The unique combination of a rapid stimulation and slower expression makes pumping especially gentle, comfortable, and efficient.
