PumpPal

Thank you for visiting!

  • What is PumpPal?
PumpPal is an initiative I am launching as a not-for-profit company in September 2019. 
The goal of PumpPal is to support mums in Irish hospitals to provide breastmilk for their babies.
A 6 month pilot of PumpPal Support Kits for breastfeeding mums of hospitalised babies was held June to December 2018 in CHI @ Crumlin. Feedback was very positive from families and staff. 

  • Why is it called PumpPal?
When a baby is unwell enough to be admitted to hospital, it is often the case that cannot physically breastfeed. If the mum wishes to provide breast milk for her baby, a breastpump is usually required. It is extremely challenging to learn how to express breast milk  while also caring for a sick child.
In addition to this, babies are often transferred for specialized care so many parents find themselves without family or a support network nearby. The title of the initiative combines 'Pump' with 'Pal' to focus on the motivation behind it: to provide support to mums.

  • How will your donation be spent?
Your donation will assist me to prepare PumpPals for the company’s launch in September 2019. 
The pilot involved creating 250 PumpPal Support Kits - all funded through donations.
Your donation will be spent on items to fill future PumpPals as pictured in the gallery above:
