Empowering our Community


Medela understands that making significant progress against the SDGs is an immense undertaking. Only through support and partnership with other like-minded organizations can we drive change to improve long-term health and societal outcomes. We are committed to advancing these outcomes by supporting parents and clinicians. At Medela, we work to increase access to breastfeeding and breast milk feeding resources, education and products. We also advance our impact by partnering with nonprofit organizations around the world that share our goals.
