Employers want solutions to retain parents in their workforce, and employees need support as they return to work after welcoming a new baby. From family and friends, to community and coworkers, many find their “kin” in all kinds of places. That’s why Medela and Mamava partnered to create Kin, a customizable parental and lactation support benefit that brings best-in-class products, technology, and resources specifically designed for new parents. 

Parents shouldn’t have to choose between returning to work and continuing to provide breast milk to their baby. With Kin by Medela, employers can support families’ priorities and enable healthy returns for the working parents in their organization.
