Military Resource for Moms – Breastpump through Tricare at NO COST!

As a military spouse, I totally “get it” … I understand the challenges and hurdles. From deployment, getting unexpected orders, figuring out how to juggle life, and more when welcoming a baby. Now whether this is your first or third, caring for a newborn is just as challenging. Providing what is best for your precious bundle of joy shouldn’t be.

Military community has always been supportive of women, especially moms. They believe that the role of every mother is a sacred one and needs appreciation. As a matter of fact, there are programs to help military spouses who have babies. The best example is The Breastfeeding Shop.

The Breastfeeding Shop offers a breast pump for military spouses through Tricare at NO COST. The best part here is it is a hassle-free application! No more waiting lines, no more filing of documents. I made an FAQ to guide you how to claim your breast pump, if you are interested, here’s how:

Q: Do I have to pay for anything?
A: No. Breast pumps are absolutely of NO COST or $0.

Q: How does it work?
A: Tricare covers the breast pumps for new mothers. Moms who adopt an infant are also eligible.

Q: Do I need a prescription from my doctor?
A: No. If you have a prescription, it’s fine. But if you don’t have one, The Breastfeeding Shop will call your doctor and get them for you.

Q: I am having another baby. Am I allowed to get another breast pump?
A: Yes. Tricare covers at least one manual or electric breast pump every time you give birth to another child or you adopt another infant.

Q: What else can I get?
A: Aside from breast pump, you can also get breast pump supplies at NO COST or $0. That includes a standard power adapter, locking ring, bottles, storage bags, and tubing adapters.

Q: Where do I claim my breast pump?
A: Right in front of your doorstep! The Breastfeeding Shop knows how difficult it is to leave the house when you’re expecting and even more challenging with a baby(ies) in tow so they will deliver it to you. Shipping usually takes a few days.

Q: How can I choose the right pump for me?
A: The Breastfeeding Shop has a wide selection of pump manufacturers. They will help you step by step how to find the right pump to suit your needs.

I love that so many different insurance companies are giving out free breast pumps now! They can be so expensive to just flat out purchase! I got mine for “free” through my insurance. I mean it really isn’t free b/c we pay for insurance but i feel like it is a wonderful perk that we deserve for our monthly payments.

i love that basic necessities are being offered for free. Breast pumps can be so expensive but, if they were more accessible to women then we would probably breastfeed longer.
