Breast feeding is so very hard, and it can be harder still if you and your baby experience additional complications and challenges. Some mums and some babies need more medical care, some babies cannot immediately latch to the breast directly, which makes nursing in the usual way impossible without expressing milk to give to baby by other means.
Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow - has an outstanding maternity unit (despite the hospital being on special measures otherwise) and they need another Medela Symphony Breast pump to support mums who need to express their milk for the good of their babies.
You're probably asking the same question I did, "Why on earth are these pumps so much more expensive than the ones you would buy for yourself to use at home?"
I can tell you - These pumps are for shared use, the kits are put together in such a way that multiple women can use the same machine without cross contamination with an assigned expression kit. These pumps also have superior pumping programmes for ultimate expression success and they are designed to last for years of use - They are your industrial strength equivalent of the pump you would buy retail for home use.
I am looking for as much contribution as possible to give Sampson post natal ward at Harlow Hospital the money for a new Medela Pump - Please help me to help them in turn help mums who want to breast feed their babies

About the fundraiser
Harlow, United Kingdom
I recently had my beautiful baby boy at Princess Alexandra Hospital Harlow. My baby boy was born early and needed every bit of breast milk I could get him to keep his blood sugars up, give him immunity and provide him with the best start I could in life.
