Medela are passionate about breast milk

Our Corporate Partners at Medela are passionate about breast milk.  

It contains all the essential nutrients needed to foster a baby’s physical and mental development, and cleverly adapts to the needs of the growing infant. With at least five times more ingredients than formula, it is full of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and vital antibodies needed to strengthen the immune system. Recently it has been shown that it also contains stem cells, the universal building blocks for growth and development.

“Medela aims to promote the health of mother and baby thanks to the vital benefits of mother’s milk. In our business area “Breastfeeding” we provide you with solutions and lots of useful information about breastfeeding”
