The first breast pump shield designed to adapt to your shape rotates 360°, four tunnel sizes, flexible rim
Overflow protection (closed system) so you can pump sitting in a position that works for you
Developed following four clinical studies and shown to improve milk flow
Flex technology a whole new pumping experience
With a unique breast shield that you can adjust to your individual shape, Medela latest innovation was developed to make expressing easier and more effective
The new PersonalFit Flex breast shield is designed to easily adapt to your shape, and encourages your milk flow by helping prevent compression of the milk ducts.
105° flange angle improves fit for better milk flow
It gives contact across the whole surface of the breast shield, and no compression points along the breast tissue
New oval shape and soft rim mums could move it around their breast to find a good seal.
What is 2-Phase Expression Technology?
2-Phase Expression is a pumping technology that mimics the baby natural sucking rhythm.
Babies initially use short, fast sucks to stimulate the Milk Ejection Reflex. Once the milk begins to flow, babies change to a slower, individual rhythm to actually feed.
It uses short, stimulating burst followed by longer patterns to provide optimal milk flow.
Stimulation Phase: Pumping rhythm of >100 cycles/minute. Fast and efficient to start milk flow
Expression Phase: Slower pumping rhythm of between 42 and 87 cycles/minute. Slower to mimic nutritive sucking with regular milk flow.
Advantages: - Maintains lactation due to stimulation of baby's sucking behaviour - Feels natural - Provide optimal mix of comfort and efficiency - Expresses more milk in less time - Shorter pumping sessions due to quicker milk ejection - Allows easier transitions from breastfeeding to pumping
