Nurture supports nursing moms by helping to establish and increase their milk supply, improving the caloric value of expressed milk and reducing the occurrence of clogged ducts and mastitis.

As a medical and lactation professional, you are well aware of the challenges that nursing moms face during the early days of establishing milk supply and maintaining adequate nutrition throughout their breastfeeding journey.
Whether you are working with mothers in the NICU, or mothers of full-term infants, the challenges are similar and can be just as difficult as proven by the poor statistics for success in meeting the minimum time recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics to ensure the health benefits of breastfeeding.
The NICU experience can be particularly difficult as you struggle to educate and calm an already anxious mother and provide neonatal care for fragile preterm infants.
As you know, nutrition during this early stage is critical for underdeveloped intestinal tracts and tremendous efforts are employed to meet nutritional needs with breastmilk.
The Nurture Breast Massager applies circumferential pressure from the chest forward in a progressive motion (designed to mimic hand massage) - a technique proven in multiple clinical studies to increase milk production.
Massage allows the breasts to empty more completely, which results in an increase in the volume and nutritional value of milk expressed as well as a reduction in the occurrence of breast pain associated with clogged ducts, engorgement and mastitis.
With Nurture you can adjust the speed, pressure and hold time according to personal preferences with the built-in controller or Nurture by Imalac mobile app.
Because I am an overproducer and it [Nurture] does sometimes stimulate, it is important that I don't use it with every single pump. I use it about once a day and it helps fully empty my breasts and helps reduce mastitis. I can't say enough great things.
I have not seen a more monumental advancement for pumping mothers, as we are often on the fringe of the breastfeeding conversation if not left out entirely. The Nurture Breast Massager is and will continue to break barriers in this regard.
I cannot speak on my experience without adding this tidbit: My daughter has a growth deficiency. (This is why I still pump religiously as we are not in her second year.) She is not sick, just very slight in stature and does not gain weight easily. One of the benefits I have personally witnessed is the better milk.
How do I know this isn't just my excitement about the device and its potential to affect better breastfeeding for mothers everywhere? I've been excited about many things since she was born. None of those things ever helped her gain 14 ounces in 2 weeks.
Breastmilk has kept her steady and given her a host of immunity benefits, but she's never been able to fatten up much. Because my milk is not fattier, she is getting even more of the good stuff. Our pediatrician is thrilled. We are thrilled. She is thriving now more than ever!
“I was having difficulty with maintaining my milk supply with just a pump. Once I used the Nurture device, my milk volume increased AND my clogged ducts were alleviated! I also noticed that instead of pumping for 20 minutes to be empty, it only took 15 when I pumped with Nurture."

Nurture is compatible with most standard electric pumps including Medela, Spectra, Ameda, Evenflo, Lansinoh, Baby Buddha and Phillips AVENT breast pumps. It is not compatible with Willow, Elvie, Freemie or the Pumpin Pals flange.
Nurture has been tested as a single user consumer product and use on more than one individual will invalidate warranty.
Imalac is working to develop a hospital grade system for multiple patient use.
All orders include free shipping via UPS ground and are shipped within 3-5 business days of receipt of order.
Depending on your client's goals, the recommendation for use is similar to how you would advise them to incorporate hands-on pumping into their routine. Further guidance on how often to use the Nurture massage is provided with each order.
Results will vary for each person. Some moms see immediate improvement and others see results up to two weeks from the time they start. We want to make sure moms have the opportunity to experience the benefit of their Nurture investment. That’s why we recommend that your client incorporate Nurture into their pumping routine consistently, at least once a day until they see results. If they are unsatisfied with their results, they are eligible to return within 30 days from the date they received their order. They would be refunded the total value of their order minus the cost of the Nurture bra ($74.99), which is theirs to keep and use as a nursing and hands-free pumping bra.
Join the Nurture Professionals program today to help your clients improve their pumping results and get the peace of mind knowing they are giving their little ones their very best.
