Introducing Medela’s latest invention -- The Medela Freestyle Flex, an extremely portable breast pump for mummies constantly out and about.
With a sleek and innovative design, its intuitive multifunctional cap touch display is extremely easy to function, allowing easy toggling between settings. Furthermore, the Freestyle Flex has a delayed start function which gives mummies more time to adjust their comfort level before pumping starts. (Especially useful for double pumping!)
What’s unique about the Freestyle Flex is that it connects functionality and technology. With its bluetooth function, the pump can be connected to the MyMedela app for easy tracking of their pumping progress. When battery levels get low, mummies can even power up anywhere and everywhere with its convenient USB port!
Medela’s new Freestyle Flex took convenience to a whole new level, without compromising on the quality of their breast pump. Although its price is definitely on the steep side, this stylish breast pump is ideal for every modern mummy constantly on-the-go.
Dimensions: 12.5 x 19 x 25.5 cm
For mums at work in need of a quick pump, the Medela Swing Flex is perfect for you! The single electric breast pump is small, compact and lightweight and only consists of a few parts, making it super easy to bring around.
The 2-Phase Expression Technology breast pump is upgraded with Medela’s newest Flex Technology, making your pumping experience much more efficient and comfortable. It features the ‘Stimulation Phase’ and ‘Expression Phase’ which works together to imitate your baby’s natural sucking for a more natural and smooth pumping.
Swing Flex comes with 2 PersonalFit Flex™ breast shields of size 21mm and 24mm for you to choose from. Angled at 105° angle with an oval shape that can be rotated 360°, the breast shields provide a better fit to the shape of your breast and help stimulate milk flow.
Compared to the Freestyle Flex and Swing Maxi Flex, the Swing Flex is definitely easier to bring out of the house, with its motor unit fitting easily into a purse and less parts to assemble. It also comes with a convenient AC adaptor or battery power options which allows for charging and mobile pumping. You’ll never have to worry about it going flat on you!

Swing Maxi Flex features Medela’s iconic 2-Phase Expression® technology which stimulates a stronger milk flow by providing a more natural and comfortable pumping experience. Coupled with its double pumping ability, expect to spend only half the normal time delivering more milk with a higher energy content than expressing from each breast in turn.
Exclusive to the Flex series, the new PersonalFit Flex™ breast shield customizes your pumping experience, to suit your needs and ensure maximal confort. It easily adapts to your breast shape to offer the best fit when you’re using the breast pump, optimizing effectiveness. The PersonalFit Flex™ Connector also allows mums to pump in a more reclined and comfortable position.
