Which Electric breast pump?
Jul 31, 2010 4:28AM
I just wondered if anyone could recommend an electric breast pump? I currently have the tommee tippee hand pump which is great but I would love something that leaves my hands free.

The Medela swing is very good, and you can shove it on inside a soft cup bra and be hands free. The Medela freestyle is a 'hands free' double, not sure how good it is though...

Medela swing is great if you are looking for a single pump. I also have the medela freestyle and it's a wonderful double pump. It does come with some straps that make it hands free but it's such a faff, I've hardly ever used it that way. I tend to get it set and then hold them both in place with one hand, so it leaves me with one hand to do things. HTH xx

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
