All moms have questions about breastfeeding, whether they’ve done it before or not. There are always questions and uncertainties, and even though breastfeeding one child may have been a breeze, another may be difficult. Medela has a great resource for breastfeeding moms - their ten episodes, online Medela Breastfeeding University.

Aeroflow Breastpumps & Medela University

Aeroflow Breastpumps is proud to partner with Medela and offer this course to all of our moms.

Medela is a highly trusted brand in the breastfeeding community, offering a wide range breastfeeding supplies and equipment from breast pumps and bottles, to lanolin and bra pads. The Medela Breastfeeding University is a series of 10 short (5-12) minute online courses designed to help prepare you to breastfeed your baby. Each class is online, mainly audio, and followed by a brief quiz.

About the course

The course in its entirety is 2 hours and 30 minutes, and costs only $25.00. If purchased through Aeroflow Breastpumps, you will also receive a coupon after completing the breastfeeding course. The Medela Breastfeeding University is currently included as a promotional giveaway with all upgraded Medela purchases made through our Qualify through Insurance program.

You can also find a wealth of useful information on breastfeeding and pumping by reading Medela’s Human Milk Magazine. There is a chart to show you how to size your breast shields to your body, steps on community support and outreach, a wonderful article explaining why breast milk is so vital in the NICU, and much more! There is also an “Ask the LC” option on their website where you can contact a lactation consultant and ask the most pressing questions.

Qualify for a breast pump through insurance

If you’re concerned about how you will continue to breastfeed once you go back to work, or just on the go,  Aeroflow Breastpumps help you obtain a breast pump through your insurance company (often at no out-of-pocket cost to you), and offers a wide selection of Medela breast pumps, and pumping supplies.

Simply complete our three-step Qualify Through Insurance form and your dedicated Breastpump Specialist will contact your insurance company and healthcare provider to verify your coverage and will contact you within 3-5 business days to discuss your pump options and shipment date.

The Medela Breastfeeding University is great for moms on the go- there is no time limit as to when the course should be completed. You can move and learn at your own pace, and each class has a “handouts” dropdown including even more great information! So wherever you are in building your family, in your first trimester or on your third child, Medela’s goal is to help navigate you through giving your baby the best nutrition (breast is best, after all), and to be as prepared as possible.
