What is Maven Milk?
Maven’s easy-to-use breast milk shipping and travel kits empower working parents to continue on their nursing journey, improving health outcomes for baby and mom. Maven Milk does all the legwork for moms, delivering TSA-approved travel kits to hotels and shipping milk back home reliably and safely. We know breastfeeding can become an impossible feat when work requires time away from baby, and traveling with pumping kits and shipping breast milk are daunting tasks. Maven Milk is helping to solve those problems.
It’s also a source of support, holistic healthcare, and clinical guidance. With Maven Milk, members have a dedicated Care Advocate who helps choose and order the perfect kit for their needs, among other things. They also have unlimited, on-demand access to Lactation Consultants in Maven’s network at any hour of the day or night for support.
While the benefits of breast milk shipping for employees are quite clear, Maven Milk does more for your company than help you retain more working parents. Here’s how we drive outcomes for employers:
- Lower lifetime healthcare costs: Breastfeeding decreases the risk of mothers developing breast and ovarian cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and postpartum depression, according to the World Health Organization.
- Fewer medical claims: Breast milk strengthens a child’s immune system and lowers his or her chances of developing allergies.
- Increased productivity and engagement at work: Maven Milk reduces hours spent researching and arranging travel logistics, among other benefits.

“[My Maven Care Advocate] emailed and stayed in contact with me through every step. And the second time around was a breeze!”
“Being away from my baby is hard enough, but Maven Milk has helped me feel less guilty. I’m still able to provide her with my breast milk and not worry myself about building up a freezer stash prior to my work trips. It’s an invaluable service and one I am so grateful for.”
