Motherhood is a time when adapting and learning take on a whole new level of meaning. Breastfeeding is one of the first challenges of motherhood, and Ameda offers a variety of pumps to support all mothers on their journey. Breast milk is the best source of nutrition for babies, making it especially important that new mums are able to continue breastfeeding after returning to work or following medical advice.
Ameda Australia supplies a diverse range of Breast Pumps to support nursing mothers in their breastfeeding journey. We have a strong belief in breastfeeding first, in support of the World Health Organisation’s breastfeeding guidelines, with breast pumps to be used as a nursing auxiliary if needed. Ameda Australia is one of the few companies that is WHO code compliant in the breastfeeding solutions category. Not all major breastfeeding products manufacturing companies abide by this voluntary determination of standards.
There are a number of reasons for using a breast pump — medical reasons, sharing the love/having a break, returning to work or needing a helping hand to produce milk. Ameda breast pumps are designed to offer new mums a comfortable and efficient way to produce milk, ensuring their little one has everything they need.
Choosing the best pump is an important decision. To help you choose, Ameda has manual, personal and multi-use breast pumps for various needs. Most importantly, Ameda’s products are supported by clinical evidence that has set the industry standard in pumping efficiency. They are dedicated to optimising the breastfeeding journey with efficient and customised solutions for both clinicians and mothers. With the diffusion of their advanced technology into breakthrough products, Ameda lets mothers take hospital technology into their homes.
Common Reasons To Use A Breast Pump
There are many reasons mothers may choose to use a breast pump. Every new mum is unique – their circumstances are too – so there’s no one pump that fits every mum’s needs. It all depends on circumstances, however, Ameda has a range of pumps to meet them all.
Regardless of the reason for wanting to pump, Ameda is here to help every mum who is searching for safe and effective solutions that can nourish their little one.
The most common reasons for using a breast pump include:
A medical condition, such as a premature birth or difficulties “latching on”, may warrant the use of a pump to ensure that a baby receives all the nutrients it needs.
Other reasons such as problems with swelling, mastitis and sore nipples may make it unviable to breastfeed the baby in the initial days after birth. If a mother has twins, triplets or more, it’s entirely possible to breastfeed them all, but some may find it easier to manage by using a pump as well.
To make sure babies receive all the necessary nutrients in these early stages, a breast pump can stimulate milk production and provide an alternative way to feed. For healthcare centres, we recommend the Ameda Platinum or Elite Breast Pump, both powerful multi-use breast pumps.
Sharing The Love / Having A Break
Support for a breastfeeding mother does not stop once the baby has been born. If a mother feels she needs to take a break, using a breast pump to express milk for a one-off occasion can free time out. This way feeding duties can be looked after by another caring adult, such as a partner or close family member, with expressed breast milk instead of formula.
The Ameda Manual Pump Kit is an excellent choice for mothers who pump their breast milk no more than once a day. For a powered option with customisable settings, the Mya Breast Pump is also available for mums to use in their own homes.
Returning To Work
Many women returning to work after giving birth wish to continue their breastfeeding journey. Whether it’s part-time or full time, using a pump can be a convenient way to produce milk throughout the day. A double pump can be taken in most handbags and is easy for on-the-go use at any time of day (even if this means using it discreetly).
We recommend using the Mya Breast Pump, a compact, quiet, safe and portable device can be operated by a rechargeable battery. It’s an ideal solution that gives freedom to mother’s out and about.
Need A Helping Hand To Produce Milk
Sometimes newborn babies need a little encouragement to breastfeed. Using a breast pump for a few minutes can soften the areola and nipple, helping the baby latch on. Any of our breast pumps can be a good choice depending on your needs.

Ameda Platinum Breast Pump
The Ameda Difference
Some non-Ameda breast pump brands in the market do not have a protective barrier at the breast flange. Without an effective barrier, the tubing can be a potential medium for condensation, moisture and mould. This risk can ultimately affect breast milk for the infant as well as the pump parts.
