Hospital Grade Breast Pump Rental Scheme
The INHA recognises the feeding challenges faced by mothers of preterm and sick infants in the Neonatal Unit and to support our breastfeeding mothers the charity has fundraised to purchase Medela Symphony Hospital Grade Breast Pumps that are available to rent.
Each pump costs approx. €2500 to purchase but thanks to the generous fundraising endeavors of our families, we now have 40 pumps in our rental scheme. We charge €40 per month for pump rental, a small deposit fee of €40 and you can avail of a courier delivery for an additional €8.50 or alternatively pumps can be collected by hand. There is no time limit on the rental term and the cost of returning the pump to the charity must be borne by the renter. All monies received by the charity from the rental scheme are used to cover the cost of the annual servicing charges and to maintain the pumps in good working order.
Due to the limited number of pumps in the scheme we operate a waiting list and we encourage mothers to contact us well in advance of requiring a pump to ensure that we can facilitate the request.
