Medela Recycles is a program focused on helping moms who have finished their lactation journey to help another mom start hers. Each pump received through Medela Recycles supports the donation of new hospital-grade, multi-use breast pumps, and supplies to Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). The goal is to provide moms with the same high-quality equipment they use at the hospital during their stay at a Ronald McDonald House.
Only Medela electric breast pumps are eligible for the Medela Recycles program. If you have another breast pump brand, please contact the manufacturer to discuss their disposal instructions. Visit the Medela Recycles website for more details.
Affordable Care Act and Lactation
The Affordable Care Act has made lactation more accessible and affordable for women. Unfortunately, many women are not aware that their insurer may cover lactation supplies. The National Women's Law Center has produced a booklet that explains, in general, what benefits may be available to lactating women.
