Mom invents discreet breast pump

About the solution

It all started when Susan returned to graduate school after the birth of her first child, and she experienced first-hand the pumping problems that so many new moms encounter.

Pumping in public can be a stressful experience. That’s why the duo developed the Gala Pump, a “hands-free, concealable, quiet and effective breast pump that women can use in the presence of others”. “We believe that this pump will free women from the current confines of pumping,” say its inventors. “Allowing them to pump any time and anywhere.”

Relying on compression rather than the traditional vacuum technology, the Gala Pump mimics manual expression. Susan notes that not only does this make it much quieter, it also eliminates contamination issues and “[reduces] the number of components for set up and cleaning from 5 to 2.” And it’s small enough to be easily tucked under mom’s shirt, allowing her to discretely pump whenever and wherever she likes.
