Your Breastfeeding Journey

The life-giving benefits of breast milk


Medela is passionate about breast milk. It contains all the essential nutrients needed to foster a baby’s physical and mental development, and cleverly adapts to the needs of the growing infant. With at least five times more ingredients than formula, it is full of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and vital antibodies needed to strengthen the immune system. Recently it has been shown that it also contains stem cells, the universal building blocks for growth and development.

A research based company

Medela is a research based company. Its investment in basic research continues to generate new insights, providing a scientific basis for new product developments. Most recent innovations include a feeding device that allows babies to apply the same sucking behaviour as learned on the breast, as well as Initiation and 2-Phase Expression Technologies – exclusive pumping patterns to support mothers to initiate, build and maintain their milk supply.

Commitment to mother and baby health

Medela’s products and educational resources are driven by the commitment to enhance mother and baby health through the life-giving benefits of breast milk. It is Medela’s goal to support mothers to feed breast milk as long as possible, and to provide in-depth information to empower mums to make informed decision about their breastfeeding goals.
