Conferences

Given the current situation of the pandemic, the Prenatal and Young Families Centre does not offer face-to-face conferences. We invite you to follow our Facebook and Instagram page to learn about the different virtual conferences available to you!

Breast Pump Rental

If you have tried the breast pump provided by the hospital during your stay, you will be on familiar ground, as the majority of large hospitals use the same model. Ameda’s Elite Pro model is very versatile and can accommodate all bodies and breastfeeds.

The domes come in a variety of sizes to ensure your comfort and the effectiveness of the machine. Be sure to measure your areolas to purchase the right sized dome.

Since you set the pump intensity and cycle speed with great precision, you can use this breast pump to stimulate and start a milk supply, as well as to pump more gently on engorged breasts without increasing production.

With the rental of the electric breast pump, you receive the link to the private video with the installation and use instructions, available in French and English.

You will need to purchase the sterile parts (Hygienikit Ameda) from us, which will be in direct contact with your skin and the milk. You will also receive instructions on how to sterilize the material for personal use.

The Prenatal Centre meets various eligibility criteria for free electric breast pump rentals, as well as for the donation of a starter bottle set. Please ask our staff if you are eligible.

Cost

  • Double bottle set #200H05: $35 each 
  • 2 week minimum rental: $35 
  • One month rental: $65 
  • Deposit of $40, refunded when the breast pump is returned in good condition.
