We have 20 Breastpumps here in Exeter, we use the ARDO Calypso pump, it’s the same one they use at the Centre for Women’s Health.
They are ‘closed’ electric pumps and come with a mains adapter, full instructions and a carrying bag. You can use batteries if you like but we don’t supply these.
Each mum needs a sterile pack containing a tube, cone and bottle which is for you to keep and has not been used by anyone else. We supply these at The Baby Room.
Our Breastfeeding Peer Supporters are all trained to hand out pumps, they are here to answer any questions you have about expressing and how it all works.
We take your contact details and £20 to cover the cost of the sterile pack and maintenance of the pumps. There is a fund available for people in receipt of certain benefits – please ask a Peer Supporter for information on this.
You can have the pump for a month
