Approximately ten years ago the Affordable Care Act began requiring insurance companies to provide breast pumps to expectant and new moms. Prior to that the options that existed were limited to renting a pump from a hospital or buying an expensive pump. Now, most mothers have access to pumps to help protect their breast health and/or feed their baby. If you would like to begin looking into getting a pump, please know that you are not limited to the pumps provided by your insurance company.
