NEWS: We recently got awarded an NSF SBIR Phase I award to further develop our technology to support moms reach their breastfeeding goals and we’re super excited. We also got backed by AdAstra Ventures, a women-led venture group. And we’re launching two new sizes for our massaging pumping bra, L and XL, which is the #1 request we get on our website.
FUN FACT: I am training for the NYC triathlon in July and super excited! First signed up in 2019 but it got canceled due to a heat wave, then 2020 we all know what happened, so 3rd time is the charm!
