Thanks to PumpEase, four babies’ lives and almost $70,000,000 in US health care costs have been saved. Not to mention those thousands of babies who’ve received their mamas’ milk (while their mamas worked, played, or just relaxed, since they didn’t have to hold onto those pump flanges!).
The in-person support that helped our mothers and grandmothers raise their families doesn’t exist for today’s modern mom; we connect in different ways. The coffee klatsch of yore has morphed into carefully curated Instagram posts and tweets. We often don’t have built-in support networks of geographically close family and friends to call on for help when we’re struggling. We need to find our digital village, to surround ourselves with compassionate voices, and build support networks with information from trustworthy sources.
