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.

“I have been a loyal Medela user for years - I had the single Swing and now using the Freestyle Flex my life has changed so much! It is so efficient, quiet and HANDS FREE - which is so handy when you have a toddler too! I find that I can get so much more milk in much less time, the breast shields are incredible in their suction power and I can do a few days of pumping (2-3 times per day) without needing to charge it.. I used to have to find a 30-40 minute window to pump while my kids slept or husband was home but now I can get it done in 15 minutes while loading the dishwasher - INCREDIBLE! If I could give it 7 stars I would, it is the best pump!” - Rachael, mom of three

“I am so in love with my freestyle flex. It is so comfortable with the new shields, so easy and compact to use and I love that it has the USB plug to use anywhere, I get more milk out when using it. The best pump I have ever used.” - Alicia, mom of one

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!

“What a great pump! I’m exclusively expressing breast milk and I’m going on my 9th week using this pump. It has minimal parts so it’s really fast and easy to wash and you know you’re getting a good clean. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to express, either exclusively or occasionally.” - Tracey, mom of one

“Fantastic pump - so glad I opted for this one in lieu of a cheaper model. Definitely worth the price - no leaking, easy to clean and quick to put on, pumps really well and never painful.” - Anna, mom of one

Medela Swing Maxi Flex
  • Cuts pumping time by half
  • Ensures greater and more stable milk flow
  • Provides a more comfortable pumping experience

Dimensions: 12.5 x 24 x 25.5 cm

Weight: 290g

Medela Swing Maxi Flex is ideal for mums who need that extra bottle in half the normal time. It has the quality of its Swing counterpart, whilst packing a stronger motor unit as it’s made for double pumping. This portable double electric breast pump ensures stable milk supply, provides ultimate comfort and helps you save time!

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.

The Swing Maxi Flex is absolutely perfect for mums who wish to boost their supply or simply in search for greater comfort during pumping. Its lightweight and compact design also makes it ideal for mums on-the-go.

“If you don’t yet own a double electric pump and are looking for a reliable option that will see you through daily pumping at work when your mat leave is up, this is the ideal choice. It’s totally worth spending the extra bit on this latest version as the Flex is so comfortable compared to the standard hard breast shields and offers the benefits of being virtually leak-proof, even if you prefer to pump while reclining.” - Made For Mums, Parenting blog

“Not even sure what else to say. This product is simply perfect and worth every single cent. I couldn’t believe it - pain free, extremely comfortable pumping, silent and expresses out more milk and in much less time. I could literally fall asleep pumping. That’s how good it is. 5 stars and I very very highly recommended” - Jamie, mom of one
