A physician inventor shows a morning television audience how they can use an electric breast pump in public with her new patented device that allows a woman to collect milk with her clothes on. The device promises to be a game changer for breastfeeding mothers in the workplace, as anchorwoman attests, "It works!"
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2009 -- In what may be a first, an ER Doctor demonstrated a breast pump - on herself - on live television in full view of the camera during a morning interview. And no, it wasn't cable.
The interview with Dr. Stella Dao by local CBS morning anchor Lisa Gonzales took place on affiliated station CW31's Good Day Sacramento, the largest morning show in central California. But the interview is unlikely to generate any complaints to the station, since Dr. Dao, the inventor of a patented new system called the Freemie, was fully clothed during the entire interview. (Watch the interview with Dr. Dao on the show's Momtrepreneur$ feature page.) The patented features of the Freemie system make it possible for a woman to comfortably pump hands-free, with her clothes on, at her desk or workstation or some other non-private setting, if she prefers or must.
Traditional breast pump systems require a woman to undress and expose themselves, which is why many larger employers are required to provide private lactation rooms for women returning from maternity leave. Nonetheless, most new moms still have a difficult time finding an adequate place or enough time during the day to pump breast milk.
