Carum Breastpump makes a “wonderful” difference at Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital

Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital selected Ardo to provide breastpumps to the neonatal, maternity and paediatric units.   The Carum hospital grade breastpump supports essential expressing in the units, however,  the compact Calypso pump is also available in the neonatal and maternity wards for mums personal use. Ardo is a WHO code compliant company.

The video is a clip from the Baby Friendly conference, showcasing how the Carum makes a huge difference to parents of premature babies. Offering convenience to mums and to help them build up milk supply.

In the video a mum of a 25 week premature baby talks about pumping in the hospital and using the Carum. She says, “the breastpumps being available in every room here has been invaluable.” After explaining more about her experience she states, “we can now go home - breastfed.”
