The idea for Bubka was born just days after our son was born.
I struggled with breastfeeding, which I knew was common. But I wasn’t prepared for the difficulty that came with pumping.
When the midwife wheeled in a bulky electric breast pump with tangled cords, she gave me a quick and complicated run down of how to use it, then left.
There I was, 4 days postpartum, crawling around on the floor to find a powerpoint behind the hospital bed, trying to untangle the cords and decipher the pump settings, only to find out the pump was broken!
I knew there had to be a better way for new mums to express breast milk.
And so Bubka was born.
