Elvie Stride, the ultra-quiet, hands-free breast pump!
Why does every mom want an Elvie breast pump?
According to their Company Page, Elvie’s mission is “to improve women’s lives through smarter technology,” and the Elvie Pump has the potential to do just that. This wearable breast pump is so sleek it can fit into your bra. It’s silent, and it comes without tubes or wires, making it totally discreet. Based on a quick scan of @elvie mentions on Instagram, Elvie-wearing mamas are pumping on the beach, at the airport, on ski slopes, hiking in national parks, at the gym─even in bars. This innovative pump does all that, and it comes with an app that can monitor milk volume in real time. It seems like Elvie could be on its way to creating a “woman who has it all” scenario.
The biggest obstacle to having it all is money.
All that being said, let’s be honest. We’re all mamas here, after all. Expensive is not good for most new parents, and the original Elvie Pump is on the expensive end of the breast pump market. Further, many insurance companies don’t cover hands-free breast pumps like the Elvie Pump. That means you’ve got to pay for this really very cool breast pump out of your possibly not so flush pocket. For lots of moms, that’s a deal breaker.
Great news! The Elvie Stride is making all your breast pumping dreams come true.
Elvie has brought a new hands-free pump to the market, and this one will be 100% covered by Tricare for active duty military moms and mil-spouses and for civilian moms by most other insurance companies. That means you can apply your insurance breast pump benefit to the Elvie Stride and enjoy the benefits of a premium wearable pump without the premium price tag. The catch is that this pump is only being sold through select durable medical equipment (DME) companies, but that’s not a problem for you because we’ve got your Elvie Stride right here on this website.
Excited yet? How about we take a look under the hood of the Elvie Stride and see what makes this sleek breast pump so special (aside from the budget-friendly insurance coverage).
How does the Elvie Stride compare to the Elvie Pump?
Like the Pump, the Stride breast pump is ultra-quiet and hands-free. It slides into a standard nursing bra, just like the Pump. Like the Pump, the Stride gives you more mobility and offers freedom from needing to be plugged into an outlet or a large motor. However, there are some differences between the two pump styles.
The original Elvie Pump is designed so that each hub has its own bottle, motor, flange, etc. This design eliminates the need for a separate control and motor housing, making the Pump streamlined. However, two tiny motors increase the cost of manufacture significantly.
With the Stride, each hub has its own bottle and flange, but the two hubs share a small controller that houses a hospital strength pump motor. Since the hubs themselves do not contain motors, they’re much more compact than the Pump. This small design change also makes the Stride more affordable for more moms without sacrificing the sleek, wearable benefits that make Elvie products so user-friendly.
What are the benefits of the Elvie Stride?
The Elvie Stride fits into your nursing bra so that you can pull your clothes on and head out into the world ready to pump. The small controller slips right into your pocket and out of sight.
The Stride is designed with noise reduction technology so that it blends into background noise and doesn’t draw attention.
The Stride connects with the free “Pump with Elvie” app that allows you to control your pump remotely while tracking your milk production.
The Stride allows you to choose from ten intensity settings in both Stimulation and Expression modes for optimal comfort and efficiency. You can also customize your pump, so it always starts with your preferred settings.
Elvie Stride is 100% covered by Tricare and most other breast pump benefit plans.
This wearable, hands-free breast pump is completely covered by Tricare for mil-moms and mil-spouses, and most other health insurance plans cover it, too. If you’re not sure whether your healthcare plan will cover the pump, don’t stress! As a DME company, we work with a wide range of insurance companies. We can quickly and easily verify you breast pump benefit on your behalf.
