Femtech firm Willow has announced its plans to commercialize its third generation, wearable, in-bra breast pump Willow Generation 3, in spring 2020. The company said that the new breast pump will feature advanced technology to support its commitment to provide a smart and productive pumping experience for mothers.
Willow president and CMO Vickie Mrva said: “At Willow, we continue to innovate and break boundaries in what defines the best in breast pumping technology.
“Our third-generation pump has been updated from the inside-out to focus on giving mom the ability to tailor her experience to her needs and get the most out of every pumping session.”

In January 2017, Willow has introduced its first mobile discreet, and hands-free, breast pump that fits inside a woman’s bra, and eliminates the need for any cords or bottles.
“At Willow, we continue to innovate and break boundaries in what defines the best in breast pumping technology,” said Vickie Mrva, President and CMO of Willow. “Our third-generation pump has been updated from the inside-out to focus on giving mom the ability to tailor her experience to her needs and get the most out of every pumping session.”
According to the company’s testing, women using the latest breast pump have pumped 20% more milk, compared to those who used earlier-generation devices. Also, the new smart suction automation and a faster transition to expression, which is similar to the way a baby naturally nurses, would maximize the milk output.
Willow said that the new generation pump has a softer, slower pumping rhythm and new sensitivity setting, and is also claimed to be more comfortable than before. The wider range of levels enables the users to control the pumping preference.
The company has recently launched its Milk Container, offering the flexibility of both spill-proof Milk Bags and a reusable container for its breast pumps. It intends to add a 21mm sized flange to their current size assortment, which would also be compatible with second-generation devices.
