Ronald McDonald House Charities®
With nearly 40% of the families served by RMHC® caring for babies in the NICU, Medela works with local Houses to support those mothers who choose to breastfeed their babies. In an effort to provide greater ease and comfort to RMHC families, while reducing the stress of having a baby in the NICU, Medela provides moms with the same high-quality equipment they use at the hospital for their stay at a Ronald McDonald House® and give families caring for a baby in the NICU one less thing to worry about.
To date, Medela has provided more than 175 hospital-grade, multi-user breast pumps to Ronald McDonald Houses across the country.
March of Dimes® March for Babies®
Medela LLC believes in the March of Dimes mission to help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies. To support March of Dimes and their efforts, the Medela LLC corporate team of employees annually participates in the March for Babies walks.
BACK TO WORK INITIATIVES
Medela strives to support new mothers as they continue their breastfeeding journey when they return to work. Medela has partnered with GOOD+ Foundation and Nurse Family Partnership to provide support for at-risk expectant and new mothers with a focus on providing support and building necessary skills for successfully staying in the workforce as a new mother.
Medela has provided pumps and bilingual education to benefit low-income mothers and children across the country to adequately prepare for a new baby. Since 2010, Medela and its sister brands have supported GOOD+ Foundation with financial and product donations totaling more than $1.7 million.
