Simply Mama’s founder, Kathleen Huggins, is a Registered Nurse and Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She’s been working with nursing mothers since 1980. Kathleen founded one of the first breastfeeding clinics in the U.S. as well as one of the first breastfeeding help lines for mothers. She is the author of several breastfeeding books, including “The Nursing Mother’s Companion” now in its 7th Edition and read by over one million mothers.
Kathleen started Simply Mama because she wanted to ensure that mothers on Medi-Cal and Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans had access to high-quality breast pumps just like mothers on other insurance plans. After extensive research and testing, Kathleen chose the BelleMa Effective Pro with IDC Electric Breast Pump as the best choice possible for mothers provided by the Affordable Care Act.
I used a breast pump with my first baby and it was so loud. This pump has been a blessing. It is small and portable, not noisy and it does the job very well.
I had never heard of this pump before but it is very convenient. Getting the pump was hassle free and it arrived the day after I got home from the hospital.
I wondered about this pump and the quality as I used the Medela pump with my first baby. I actually prefer this pump to the Medela! It is small, and simple to use. It is easy to take to work.
