Medela partners with Well.ca to support breastfeeding families through Mamas for Mamas
Medela, the most trusted breast pump brand*, in partnership with Well.ca, announced a month-long sale to benefit families across Canada. Through the month of October, for every $25 of Medela product purchased on Well.ca, Medela will donate one breastfeeding essential to Mamas for Mamas, a nonprofit organization that provides essential equipment, products, clothing and educational services to families in need.
“We’re honored to contribute to the community-driven support that Mamas for Mamas provides to families across Canada,” shares Jeff Castillo, executive vice president of Medela Americas. “This effort reflects our commitment to improving infant and maternal health outcomes. This year, we are proud to have been able to support more than 80,000 families across the USA and Canada through our Medela Cares program.”
This donation is a part of Medela Cares, the company’s corporate social responsibility program, which focuses on solutions for global issues, including maternal and infant health amidst critical transitions such coming home from the hospital, fostering the mother-baby bond in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) or the return to work. With Medela Cares’ emphasis on serving the underrepresented and populations experiencing crisis, earlier Medela announced its support of March of Dimes, providing product, advocacy and educational resources.
