As a breastfeeding mum, this week is a special week – World Breastfeeding Week running from the 1st – 7th August. This time last year I was in the full swing of breastfeeding a 6 month old, now 12 months down the line I’m still breastfeeding baby girl, but only once a day now and I’m sure that won’t be for much longer as she’s weaning herself off.
Breast Pumps Direct have launched an innovative new program called Chance to Choose. This program allows mums to “trade-up” their insurance-provided breast pump so they can get a premium pump that works best for them at a special discounted price. In addition, their traded in pump will be re-serviced and donated to a mum in need. Many mums across the globe do not have access to a breast pump and are often left to mix formula with unsafe drinking water. This program gives mums the chance to choose breastfeeding and give their baby the health benefits that come with breastfeeding.
Here is a little more about their program:
WHAT IS THE CHANCE TO CHOOSE PROGRAM?
An innovative breast pump “trade-up” program which allows mums to trade-in their current or insurance-provided pump in exchange for a brand new pump of their choosing at a heavily reduced price. The traded-in pumps will be donated and distributed to mums across the globe via our charitable partners.
WHY DID BREAST PUMPS DIRECT CREATE THIS PROGRAM?
Mums are constantly faced with making decisions – especially early on when it comes to their baby’s nutrition and wellbeing. But what if you didn’t have a choice? What if you didn’t have access to clean water to mix formula or a breast pump to leave milk for your growing baby while you work to provide for your family? We want every mum to have the chance to choose better for themselves and their baby. We want every mum around the world to have access to a breast pump in order to establish and maintain a healthy breastfeeding relationship. That is the foundation of the Chance to Choose trade-up program.
WHY IS BREASTFEEDING SO IMPORTANT?
Did you know that breastfeeding can…
● Protect children from developing obesity or diabetes later in life
● Have the greatest potential impact on child survival of all preventive interventions
● Have the potential to prevent over 800,000 deaths in children under five in the developing world
● Save the planet – formula generates tons of landfill waste
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO TRADE UP?
Any mum who is unhappy with her current pump provided through her insurance. Did you know that several mums that receive an insurance-provided pump often purchase a premium pump at full price, leaving their insurance-provided pump collecting dust or thrown in the trash? Often times, insurance-provided pumps are very basic and do not fulfill mums’ every need. That’s where we come in – mum gets the premium pump she wants at a great price AND the donated pump is distributed to a mum who would otherwise not have access to one.
WILL I HAVE TO SEND IN MY PUMP FIRST?
No. We will ship and send out your new pump along with a pre-paid shipping label. Once you receive your new premium pump, you can ship us your donated pump.
WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE OR TRADE UP MY PUMP?
You can learn more or trade-up your pump at www.breastpumpsdirect.com
