Breast Pumps

With grant funding and the WIC program we have been able to purchase breast pumps to help you breastfeed successfully. We have two electric breast pumps to loan (depending on availability, qualifications and need), and several manual breast pumps to give away for free. We have staff to help with education relating to these breast pumps, and will follow up to see how things are going. If you are interested in more information about our breast pump program, please call our office at 620-842-5132.
