    I wish! At least my hospital did not and I've never heard that. I BF my first two and they sent me home with just my boobs. ;)

    It depends if your insurance covers it, if anything you can contact your insurance provider covers one. I know the birthing center near me you can rent them out if your insurance doesn't cover it. xx

    I'm in Florida, and I was given a manual pump to take home. Though I never had any luck getting milk from a manual and had to buy a electric one.

    WIC will give you one if you go back to work. But I hope this is true!

    Depends on both your insurance and the hospital you deliver at but if you qualify for Wic they are now providing manual and electric pumps for new moms.

    If you qualify for WIC, they will provide you with one if your insurance does not. xx If you are interested, you can call your local office and check if you qualify.
