Breast milk contains a potent mix of enzymes, hormones and nutrients including, on average, 67 calories per 100ml.
The incredible thing about breast milk is that the chemical composition adapts to a baby’s needs as s/he grows.
Most importantly it contains immune cells that can help protect a baby from catching viruses like colds and flu.
But breastfeeding can be restrictive for mums, which is why many choose to express milk.
Unlike other breast pumps, Elvie fits inside a bra, allowing mums to get on with their day while expressing hands-free.
Using Elvie liberates women to pump on their own terms, which can help the health and wellbeing of both mum and baby.
