Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2011
I Want a Breast Pump, a specialty store catering to mothers interested in forgoing bottle feeding, is offering a special discount rate on the rental and purchase of personal breast pumps and accessories this month.
The company is dedicated to providing breastfeeding mothers with hospital-grade, electric breast pumps at reasonable prices in the heart of the DUMBO area of Brooklyn, with shipping to the continental United States. It is owned by two sisters who want women to realize the long-term health benefits of breastfeeding for children, as opposed to starting newborns on formula.
“We want mothers to have access to all of the information and devices they need to effectively breastfeed their children,” said Margie Dorvil, co-owner of I Want a Breast Pump. “My sister and I opened our store so that other mothers could rent hospital-grade pumps and purchase personal accessories from Medela & Ameda. In general, we want them to have the support and accessibility that makes for an easier breastfeeding experience.”
As part of its commitment to education, I Want a Breast Pump provides discounts to various parent groups and continually runs special promotions to make breastfeeding an affordable option for all mothers. Part of this support comes from the Loving Hand Moms social support group for pregnant women and first- and second-time mothers.
According to Dorvil, her support of breastfeeding comes from her own experiences, and she wants to spread the word about its benefits.
“I breastfed my daughter until the age of two, and I realized that is the best thing I could have done for her starting out in life despite the initial difficulties getting started,” Dorvil said. “With the help of a lactation consultant, a Medala symphony breast pump and my perseverance, I was able to overcome my difficulties with breastfeeding. Because of this, I wanted to provide that kind of support to other mothers who are facing similar obstacles.”
