About Willow:

Founded in 2014, Willow forever changed the way women pump with the world’s first quiet all-in-one, in-bra wearable breast pump. The Willow Wearable Breast Pump ditches the long tubes, cords, dangling bottles and loud sucking sounds so moms can pump wherever their day takes them. We are just getting started. The company is experiencing strong growth and is poised for continued success in the booming Femtech space. We are a mission-driven team of experienced inventors, mothers, and fathers dedicated to making a difference in mom’s life.
