With the excitement of pregnancy, you’re probably thinking about baby clothes, a cute crib, a carseat – a whole world of new items for the baby. A breast pump might not come to the top of your mind. Why get one now? You’re wondering. I can breastfeed for the first month or so.

Here’s the truth: If you have health insurance or Medicaid, you can probably get a breast pump for free or at a low cost. It just takes a phone call or two.
