If you’re pregnant, you should keep these things in mind:
Doctors and health organizations agree that breastfeeding is best. You may already know that breast milk is packed with the perfect mix of nutrients your baby needs. But did you know that it is also more than just food? Breast milk has special ingredients, like antibodies, that only you can provide. Breast pumps are helpful if you’re breastfeeding and have to be away from your baby. Your Care Manager can help you order your breast pump as part of your covered services.
