Amedia Mya personal breast pump was launched today by Ameda Breastfeeding Products.

Ameda Mya is a premium hospital strength portable breast pump designed for moms at home, at work or on-the-go.

The Mya family name is an ode to Sister Maya, a historic Ameda figure and the co-creator of the modern breast pump. Sister Maya worked alongside Swedish inventor and founder of Ameda, Einar Egnell, to develop the first breast pump that mimicked a baby’s natural nursing rhythm and intensity—the Sister Maya Breast Pump, or SMB.

“The SMB was a medical innovation whose technology is still used in hospitals today. With the technology featured in the new Ameda Mya, we believe it will do its namesake proud, as the next generation of breakthrough breast pumps,” said Patricia Scheller, Ameda Chief Executive Officer. “Our goal was to create a pump that offered convenience and portability without compromising comfort or effectiveness. We wanted to give mom’s more freedom, with the ability to reach their breastfeeding goals whenever, wherever.”

The Mya pump weighs half a pound and measures 4 by 3.5 inches. The ultra-quiet motor operates features two-phase adjustable suction with ten levels of expression and five levels of massage, with a maximum suction strength of 280mmHg.

“Moms love that the Mya is ultra-quiet, fits in the palm of your hand, and runs on a rechargeable battery. Even at this compact size, we were able to incorporate a higher suction strength than the average personal breast pump,” Betsy Summers, Senior Global Marketing Manager.

Like other Ameda pumps, Mya includes a true closed system to prevent breastmilk from backing up into the tubing and pump, protecting against mold or the spread of bacteria and viruses.

The Ameda Mya is available in the United States through insurance benefits and at
