As a new mum, you want to give your little one the best start in life. Research has shown that breast milk can significantly help the development of babies in neonatal units and thereafter. This is a very practical way in which you can contribute to your vulnerable baby’s development and growth in the crucially important early days and weeks of life.
TinyLife’s Breast Pump Loan Service enables you to express your own milk to be fed to your baby – providing breast milk can help you to bond with your baby in these difficult early stages when you may be feeling detached and isolated.
All our breast pumps are hospital grade electric double pumps and you are provided with all the information you need to use the pump and ongoing support from our Breast Pump Loan Administrator when required.
The loan period is normally 8 weeks however, if you require the pump for longer we can arrange a suitable extension period.
There is a small cost to loaning a TinyLife breast pump which includes a fully refundable deposit and contribution towards the cost of your own breast pump kit with bottles that are yours to keep.
We have breast pumps supplied by Ardo and Medela and our Breast Pump Loan Coordinator can give support and advice on using the pump you are loaned.
