Time to Dump the Pump

In 2014, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) hosted a “hackathon” competition called “Make the Breast Pump Not Suck,” where more than 150 designers, developers, engineers, midwives, doctors, lactation consultants and corporations came together to share ideas about pump improvement. The result? Some participants are now bringing their ideas to market, including Brothers, who was on the winning team with Clinton Health’s Robyn Churchill.
