Fullerton, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Hygeia Inc. recently announced another step forward in its on-going initiative to better support mothers and babies by eliminating the waiting period for mothers who hope to utilize Hygeia’s hospital-grade performing personal use breast pump. Hygeia breast pumps are now carried by Humana in-network DME’s.
“We are excited that Moms who want our pumps can now get them without delay,” said Decky Goodrich, CEO of Hygeia Baby. “As all of us in the breastfeeding community will attest, keeping babies properly nourished with breast milk is critical to babies' health. But it also helps mothers, as well, playing an important role in lowering the risk of many illnesses in women, including type 2 diabetes and certain deadly cancers.”
Humana Inc., headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, is a leading health care company that offers a wide range of insurance products and health and wellness services that incorporate an integrated approach to lifelong well-being.
Hygeia Inc. is a leading supplier of hospital-grade, eco-friendly breast pumps. It is the only pump company to be endorsed by La Leche League International, and all its pumps come with a free annual Supporting Membership to LLLI. Each pump in the portfolio features hospital-grade performance, and the company is WHO Code compliant. When mothers are finished with the pump, they are encouraged to return the pump for recycling or reuse.
