Elvie Stride, a smart breast pump for mothers, has been launched exclusively in the United States by British femtech company Elvie. 

The Elvie Stride is described by the company as an ultra-quiet pump that moves with moms, so they do not have to stay put in one place in order to pump breast milk. As it is a smart device, moms can control the Elvie Stride remotely. 

What makes this smart breast pump is that moms can get it either for free or at a lower cost, thanks to it being covered by insurance.

Elvie Stride  is a smart breast pump from British femtech company Elvie. This smart breast pump has been launched exclusively in the United States. 

If you are a mom or you know someone who is a breastfeeding mom, the Elvie Stride can serve as the perfect gift even if it is not Mother's Day or Christmas just yet.

The Elvie website describes the smart breast pump as an "ultra-quiet, hands-free electric breast pump" that is for mothers who are on the move. The new product will certainly be convenient for all working moms in particular. In 2015, the United Nations (UN) called for better breastfeeding policies for mothers who have to work. 

"Worn under clothing, Elvie stride collects milk in-bra, keeping your hands and body free to move," the website reads. 

As it is a smart device, moms can connect the Elvie Stride to the company's Pump with Elvie app so that they can have a record of their pumping history. They can also control the pump remotely through the Pump with Elvie app.
