Pump Loans

OBS has a small number of Lactaline personal double electric breastpumps that can be borrowed for a maximum of 3 weeks, in cases of urgent clinical need ONLY. Milk collection kits are supplied.

If you are still under the care of a midwife, please ask your midwifery team about borrowing a pump from them first.

Pumps can also be commercially hired from the providers below. This list is not exhaustive and OBS has no relationship with these providers.

OBS pump hire costs £10 for the first week and £5 per week for the second and third week.  If this is not affordable for you, please contact us in confidence at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.g.

We ask that pumps are borrowed for a maximum of three weeks; if kept for longer than this, the hire charge will be £20 a week up until six weeks. If a pump is not returned within six weeks, then the borrower will be responsible for the cost of a new replacement pump of the same model, in  addition to the usual cost of pump loan.  (Cost at 13.10.18: £129.99)

To enquire about borrowing a pump, please visit one of our Drop-In sessions as pumps will not normally be loaned without seeing one of our Facilitators. We have pumps at South Oxford Grandpont (Tuesday) and Donnington Doorstep (Sunday) but may be able to arrange delivery of a pump to a different session or, occasionally, at home. You can also email pumps@oxbreastfeedingsupport.org.
