Symphony breast pump
The Symphony breast pump with its research-based pumping programs has been developed specifically to support mums throughout their lactation journey: to initiate, build and maintain an adequate milk supply. Medela Symphony is a reliable, multi-user breast pump for hospitals and home rental, ideal for long-term and frequent pumping.
Natural breast pumping with 2-Phase Expression technology
The emotional closeness and the bond between mum and baby during breastfeeding are very special. It is no wonder, then, that mums are reluctant to place their trust in a breast pump. But when direct breastfeeding is not possible or the mum is experiencing difficulties, switching to a breast pump might be very helpful.
With Symphony, Medela has developed a clinically researched breast pump that mimics the natural sucking behaviour of babies at the mum’s breast to optimise milk output during established lactation.
Benefits of Symphony double breast pump
The hospital-grade, multi-user Symphony breast pump with its technical features and accessories is based on clinical research and is designed to support mums to meet their individual needs throughout their lactation journey.
Symphony features Medela’s 2-Phase Expression technology, comes with overflow protection and is equipped for double and single pumping. What is more, the pump operates quietly, too.
- Helps initiate lactation when using the Preemie+ program
- Particularly gentle on extremely sensitive breast tissue
- Alleviates symptoms of engorgement and helps heal mastitis
- Brings out flat or inverted nipples
- Easy to use and pleasingly quiet operation
Benefits of double pumping and 2-Phase Expression technology
The combination of double pumping and Medela's 2-Phase Expression technology provides the following benefits:
- Time saving – more milk in less time
- Maintains milk supply when direct breastfeeding is not possible
- Milk has higher energy content – especially beneficial for preterm infants
- Comfortable and efficient
