The Freestyle Hands-free Breast Pump - What A Gamechanger

With the launch of our new Freestyle Hands-free Breast Pump has come with it some fantastic innovation and a way to save time as a new mum.

Read on to find out why this fantastic new pump is right for you!

Medela. We are a company known for our breast pumps, for providing quality products to help you as a parent make your life easier.

The next step has been taken to go ahead and give you something back that you have lost with the addition of a newborn in the house. The gift of time.

Let's take a minute and see why it is proving so popular. The mums that have tried it have loved it. The reviews are out of this world with one mum saying "I would give it a million stars out of 5 if I could". But why? Why are mums claiming "You NEED to buy this pump?"

Let's break it down and find out!

Wearable, ultra-lightweight collection cups are amongst the lightest available (76g each) AND are designed to fit comfortably and discreetly in your bra

How amazing is that? When you are breastfeeding, you boobs can already be as heavy as led. You can be sweaty, you can be uncomfortable and the last thing you want is the addition of extra weight inside your bra. We've got you! These cups are so incredibly light you barely even know you are wearing them. To be able to pump without feeling any extra weight?! 
You only need to pump for 15ish minutes in total (being a double pump your pumping time is halved) so you don't need to worry about keeping the cups on for long periods of time 🙌
And yes, you can turn this pump into a single too!

Combines comfort with portability, helping busy mums to multi-task

What important words 'comfort' and 'portability' are when it comes to pumping. When you are forced to sit down at the table or on the couch to do a pumping session, that dreaded feeling of wasting time can instantly overtake you. Not any more! Need to fold the washing? Want to get down low and do tummy time? Is your toddler screaming for lunch and won't stop crying until they get their way?

Medela has your back! You can do all of those things and just about anything else, all while fitting in your pumping session 🙌 To quote the beautiful Nartarsha Bamblett, you have been gifted back "the duality of life". 

To continue about your day to day all while you have a breast pump attached to you? How amazing is that?!

Plus, the motor just sits in your pocket or tucked snuggly into your waistband, not getting in the way at all.

Anatomically shaped collection cups uniquely designed to maximise milk expression and comfort by reducing compression of breast tissue

The last thing you want when you are using a breast pump is for your breast and nipple to feel squished. It's uncomfortable, can cause all kinds of complications and there's a highly large chance you are NOT getting your maximum amount of milk out. 

The fabulous shape of the collection cups in the Freestyle Hands-free is innovation at its finest. Much like our PersonalFit Flex Breastshields, they have been shaped to match the shape of your boob. Think of an avocado. Plus the cups can fit inside virtutally any nursing bra, although we have designed one especially for the pump, our 3in 1 Hands-free Pumping and Nursing Bra.

We are uncomfortable enough when we are pregnant, when we have just had a baby and didn't know what tired was until the first few weeks of broken sleep. We certainly don't need the addition of sore breasts being added to the mix. 

Available now in three sizes, the collection cups on the Freestyle Hands-free will keep you from feeling uncomfortable.

Connectivity to the Medela Family™ app allows you to create a personalized profile tailored to your needs

Our Medela Family App is such a life-saver when it comes to your breastfeeding journey. Being able to keep track of your feeding and pumping sessions, the amount you have extracted and how much your baby has drunk all in the one place? How convenient is that?

When you are tired, it is next to impossible to remember even the most basic of things. Despite telling yourself you can. And why should you? You've just birthed a human being, give yourself a break mama! Let the Medela Family App do it all for you.

And as a side-note, the Freestyle Hands-free comes with a built-in, USB rechargable battery. So you can pump wherever you are and once you have yourself some data, WiFi or Hotspot capabilites, your app will be ready to be updated 🙌

2-Phase Expression™ technology mimics your baby’s natural sucking rhythm

It's just so incredibly fancy. It's a tricky thing, getting breastfeeding down. Some women can be blessed with a baby that is born a good feeder. Other babies need some help along the way. And by other babies, we mean most babies so you are certainly not alone!
Much like when we as adults are hungry, the beginning of the meal is always the quickest. As you begin to get full, you slow down. A baby is no different. The Freestyle Hands-free is faster at first to stimulate your milk flow, then slower to express milk for efficient and comfortable pumping. That's 2-Phase Expression™ Technology in a nut-shell.

Only three parts to clean

You read that right, three parts! The cup, the membrane and the shield. That is literally it. Wash in hot soapy water or simply throw it in the dishwasher, you have what is an incredibly easy and convenient pump to clean.

We cannot stress the following enough,  DON'T CLEAN THE TUBING OR THE MOTOR!

Like all of our electric pumps, the Freestyle Hands-free is a closed system so you don't need to worry about your milk dripping down into the tubing. 

So when we say three parts to clean, we really do mean only three parts! 

And those are the reasons you need the Freestyle Hands-free!

You will be so glad you took the plunge and entered the world of hands-free pumping. You can gain some of your life back because you have the time to do so.
