Medela recycles and you win! This program encourages Mothers who have finished using their pumps to recycle them through a special program so that Mothers-in-need, with babies in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) have access to a pump to aid in nourishing their infants.
Each pump Medela receives through this program supports the donation of new hospital-grade, multi-use breast pump which is then supplied to charity. Specifically women who have newborns in the NICU unit who have moved out of the hospital, and are nearby in an out-care facility to be close to their baby. The goal is to provide Mothers with the same high-quality equipment they used at the hospital during their stay, being one less thing to worry about it, in an already stressful time.
