If a baby is in NICU, or is unable to breastfeed effectively, if the lactating parent is having trouble making quite enough milk, breast pump rental can be an invaluable tool to help breastfeeding get off to a good start!
The Medela Symphony Hospital-Grade Breastpump
For daily use - Double pumping
The Symphony is a double-sided hospital-grade electric breast pump and is effective for frequent, long-term pumping. It is quiet and very adjustable, to make pumping as comfortable as possible.
To rent a pump from Mothering Touch, you will need a driver’s license or BCID and a VISA or MasterCard. The cost of renting a breastpump is $3/day ($30 minimum) or $90 per calendar month.
You will also need to purchase a milk-collection kit (the plastic bottles and tubes and flanges which actually catch the milk). These are $79.99 (double-sided).

Natural Pumping with 2-Phase Expression
With the help of the University of Western Australia and our own experience, Medela developed the unique 2-Phase Expression Technology, which imitates the natural sucking pattern of babies at the mother's breast. This stimulates the flow of milk, meaning that more breastmilk can be pumped in less time, a fact which studies and hospitals have confirmed.
The Symphony breastpump from Medela ensures that you can pump breastmilk comfortably thanks to its special Comfort Flow Zone. This is particularly gentle on extremely sensitive breast tissue. This makes it ideal for expressing breastmilk regularly over a longer period.
