Lansinoh Donates a Year’s Worth of Breast Pumps To GOOD+ Foundation

Global leader in breastfeeding donates over $200K in breast pumps
to help ensure all mothers have access to breastfeeding support

ALEXANDRIA, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lansinoh Laboratories, Inc., a global leader in breastfeeding
accessories, has donated a year’s worth of breast pumps and
breastfeeding supplies to GOOD+ Foundation (formerly Baby Buggy). GOOD+
is a non-profit organization founded by Jessica Seinfeld to provide
essential clothing, gear and services to families in need. The donation
from Lansinoh is valued at $200,000 and is the largest one-time breast
pump donation ever received by GOOD+ Foundation.

In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week, which occurs from August
1-7, Lansinoh has donated more than 800 Signature Pro® Double Electric
Breast Pumps to help reduce barriers to breastfeeding in low-income
communities. GOOD+ Foundation is distributing the breast pumps to a
network of over 100 community-based organizations across the country and
the pumps will be provided with education to support expecting and
nursing moms throughout their breastfeeding journeys.

“For more than 30 years, Lansinoh has offered education and products
that help every mom meet her breastfeeding goals,” said Gina
Cicatelli-Ciagne, CLC and Vice President of Global Healthcare Relations
at Lansinoh. “The Affordable Care Act has helped many new moms obtain
breast pumps, but not everyone has been able to easily access this
benefit. Low-income moms are especially vulnerable due to the likelihood
of being separated earlier from their breastfeeding babies after birth
due to varying levels of insurance coverage and maternity leave. Through
our partnership with GOOD+ Foundation, we are thrilled to help close
that gap and ensure that every mom – regardless of her circumstances
–has access to a high quality breast pump.”

Cicatelli-Ciagne continued, “Lansinoh’s 2016 Global Survey focused on
health care professionals’ attitudes and beliefs about breastfeeding. We
found that health practitioners see myriad challenges facing new moms
who want to breastfeed, including concerns from mom that she is not
doing it right (23% say it’s the top barrier to breastfeeding), a lack
of support when mom returns to work (20%), and a lack of awareness about
the tools available (21%). Partnerships like ours with GOOD+ Foundation
are key to addressing these barriers, delivering resources and education
to moms in need.”

“GOOD+ Foundation and Lansinoh have partnered several times over the
years and the mothers we serve benefit greatly from the combination of
donated breastfeeding products and supportive parenting education
programs,” said Jessica Seinfeld, founder and board chair at GOOD+
Foundation. “Breast pumps are critical for the people we serve, many of
whom have little to no maternity leave and are often forced to return to
work shortly after welcoming their baby. These pumps will help to ensure
that moms can continue to provide their babies with the incredible
benefits of breastmilk, even when they are apart.”

GOOD+ Foundation has started to distribute Lansinoh Signature Pro®
breast pumps to mothers and will continue to do so throughout the year.

During World Breastfeeding Week and every day, Lansinoh is committed to
supporting new mothers and their partners as they navigate the highs and
lows of breastfeeding. These are captured beautifully in Lansinoh’s
latest video release, called “Being A Mom Is…” – http://bit.ly/29EsGeb.
