I’ve only heard great reviews for Medela. My obgyn, pediatrician, and lactation consultants seem to stand by Medela. Call your insurance company too and see if they will pay all or a portion of your breast pump.

I have a very good insurance plan by Aetna and they are paying 100%, after decutible which I will meet with the delivery, for the purchase of a breast pump as long as I go to an in-network DME supplier. I couldn’t figure it out from reading everything online so I just called customer service. The way mine works is that after the baby is born the doctor will write a prescription and then I can pick up the pump. I have already located the place and completed the paperwork.

@PrncssDva:  Under the Obama Healthcare law, pumps will be covered by most insurance plans. It started after Aug 1st, or for any plan that renews after Aug 1st it will be in your renewal plan. So at work, my plan renews in October. I’m going to wait until then to contact them about it, as I’m not due til February, but according to their website an electric double pump or rental of a hopsital grade pump will be covered. You have to order it through your doctor or a medical supplier though, can’t buy it at BRU and send it a receipt. Yay free pumps!

@PrncssDva:  I’ve heard good things about all Medela breast pumps, but I second what Roxy821 said. I just called my insurance and my breast pump is covered 100% with the new law that just passed since we renewed our insurance on August 1! Oh yeah! I’m way too excited 🙂 

& I just notice you are in Memphis! Me too 🙂 small world!

Definately a Pump In Style fan here. That is what I use with #2. Medela customer service is great if your need replacemnt parts too!

I got a Medela pump (though haven’t used it yet since baby hasn’t arrived yet). It’s what the lectation consultants at both the hospital and pediatrician office recommended; and also what several other moms told me to get.

The best? A hospital grade Medela Symphony. lol. I got one rented to me from the base hospital here when I was trying to relactate.

My friend is an exclusive pumper and has the Ameda Purely Yours pump. She loves her and says it works really, really well. It’s like half the price of a Medela too, which is awesome.
