About Motif Medical

Moms are busy. Work, doctor’s appointments, playdates—it all adds up, and you need a breast pump that can keep up with your active lifestyle without getting in the way. Founded by working mothers, engineers, and medical professionals, Motif Medical specializes in providing wearable, hands-free breast pumps.

The company broke onto the breast pump scene with the Duo in 2017, a small, user-friendly breast pump that enhances the breast pumping experience for nursing moms. Since then, Motif’s product range has expanded to include a line of breast pumps, accessories, and maternity compression clothing. Not only does their product range show a desire to see moms from pregnancy through birth and into postpartum, but it also shows an understanding of the materials and items moms need to support them through these changes.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite Motif products for moms on the go or busy moms below. Read through our selection of small, portable pumps and supplies, all available on our website, to find the type of pump to fit your lifestyle. We might even be able to help you receive a pump through insurance by looking at your plan!

Motif Breast Pump Supplies

Take a peek inside our one-stop shop for all the breast pump equipment you’ll need to use alongside your Motif pump. Whether you need to restock your valves and tubing or you’re looking for a kit with all the essentials, our site has you covered.

Motif Valves, Diaphragms, Tubing, Shields, and Connectors

BPA-free, Motif has a range of tubing to maintain proper hygiene. Replace the tubing every three months and/or whenever moisture or breast milk accumulates in the tubing. The 32-inch tubing is available for the following pumps: Duo, Twist, and Luna.

These two Motif Duo Tubing Connectors attach to both ends of the Motif Duo tubing and come in handy when you’ve lost or damaged one. 

Motif Duo Breastshield Connectors attach to the top of the milk collection bottles to connect the diaphragm and breast shield to your pump. The breast shield sizes available for the Luna Breast Shields, Duo Breastshields, and Twist Breastshields come in 21mm, 24mm, 28mm, and 32mm to provide comfort and the right fit. 

Aura Breast Shields - 29 mm are compatible with Aura Silicone Inserts to create the perfect fit for you. Additionally, connect your Twist breast pump’s shields to the milk collection kits with the Motif Twist Pump Breast Shield Connectors.

Diaphragms are necessary to create a closed system and prevent your tubing from coming into contact with breast milk. In addition to preventing contamination, diaphragms prevent the buildup of mildew and bacteria. Select either the Luna Diaphragms or Duo Diaphragms to accompany your pump.

The Luna Valves have a duckbill design to fit the Luna Breast Pump. Attach them to the underside of the breast shield to create a seal. Need a different valve for a different pump? We’ve got them all: Aura Valves, Duo Valves, and Twist Valves and Membranes.
