Only the Best for Mom and Baby
Both mom and baby benefit from breastfeeding. Breast milk contains antibodies that can’t be engineered, and the physical contact helps you bond with your baby. Military women with TRICARE coverage have an additional advantage: they now have access to the seamless services of the Breastfeeding Shop, a top provider of quality breast pumps and supplies for mom and baby with no out-of-pocket expense.
Patty Gatter, the CEO of the Breastfeeding Shop, is passionate about a number of things, among them being a mom, being a business woman, and serving the military community. Her great-grandfather, grandfather, and father-in-law all served, and she sees providing military families with breastfeeding supplies as a personal calling.
“My goal as a mom and breast pump supplier is to not only provide as much as possible for the moms but to educate them on what exactly is available to them via their insurance,” said Gatter. “Many companies just take an order and send whatever they feel is best – without taking the mom’s situation into consideration. I think we all have different needs.”
After receiving in-network approval, to enhance the shopping experience, the Breastfeeding Shop hired additional customer support representatives and launched an app on both Google and Apple.
All Tricare-eligible females who have a “birth event” including pregnancy and childbirth or a legal adoption are eligible for breast pumps and supplies before and after delivery.
A prescription from a Tricare-authorized doctor, physician assistant, nurse practitioner or nurse midwife is all that is needed to allow new and expecting moms access to the services of the Breastfeeding Shop. Click here to the order your breast pump covered 100% through insurance now.
