Choosing a breast pump can be a big decision for new moms. Suitable pumps make life easier and give you the peace of mind that your baby is getting all of the nutrients they need. Hospital grade breast pumps are helpful for new moms who need extra help producing milk or need a faster and stronger option than other pumps. At Pumps for Mom, we know all the details about different types of breast pumps and we’re here to help you make the right choice for your body and baby. 

What is a Hospital Grade Breast Pump?

Hospital grade breast pumps are known to elevate breast milk production by raising hormone levels with stimulation. Typically developed for multi-patient, in-hospital use, hospital grade breast pumps are designed with barriers to eliminate bacteria, which makes them a healthy alternative to conventional pumps.

These pumps are equipped with powerful motors, meaning they are solid and durable for new moms. Hospital grade pumps can be rented through insurance for mothers with twins, sick infants, or moms who need to induce lactation or increase their milk supply to use at home. 

What to Look for in a Hospital Grade Breast Pump

When searching for a hospital grade breast pump, moms should look for a hygienic pump that helps increase milk supply with frequent use. Look for the essential qualities that best suit your lifestyle: do you need something portable? Is comfort the number one priority? Is there a medical reason that you need to produce more milk, making the efficiency the first thing you consider in a pump?
