Best purchase ever
This product was amazing. I had twins and found this unit far more comfortable and efficient than the hospitals medela unit. Was used multiple times a day every day for over 12 months and it has never skipped a beat. Great time saver for any mum. The manual attachments were also handy. Highly recommended.
Excellent Pump, Fantastic Customer Service
I purchased the Unimom Forte from the Pregnancy & Babies Expo last year and have been using it daily for the past few months. I've been expressing to get my baby comfortable on the bottle to make my transition back to work as seamless as possible for him. It has been an excellent pump! It's comfortable to use and I like how it can be used as either a double or single pump (which I've used while nursing my baby at the same time). It doesn't have a let down mode, though I find the let down happens anyway once you start pumping and I was able to establish a good supply to store some for returning to work.
It was just my luck that I was a week out from returning to work that the Unimom forte stopped working. I contacted Ubere by email, as I discovered the fault after 5pm Sydney time, on a weekday & was so surprised to get a call back within the hour (I think it might have even been 15 mins). Eileen organised a replacement new device for me to pick up the next day (thanks again) - I was so impressed by her service as I felt her team were so genuine in helping as not to affect my supply.
Highly recommend this pump as it is great value for a hospital grade closed system pump. Highly recommend Ubere because they have such excellent customer service.
I was so impressed overall with the Unimom forte that I ended up getting the Unimom Allegro also, so I could express while at work.
Thanks again Ubere!
Best breast pump!
Easy to use, effective and great price! Recently stumbled upon this breast pump, and so happy I did as my first pump kept getting milk and vapour backfkowing and causing hygiene issues which concerned me but I didn't know any better being a first time mum. So happy to have the unimom forte this time around ,its simple to use, effective and super easy to clean and no backflow.
Wish I had the Unimom Forte for my first child!
I had used the Unimom Forte for the past six months to express breastmilk for my second child and it has been absolutely amazing! It is much gentler and far more comfortable to use than the Medela Symphony used at the hospitals, and the Medela Swing I had bought when I had my first child. Due to medical issues, I was loaned the Medela Symphony by the hospital and tried to exclusively pump with it, but it was very painful. I then tried the Unimom Forte and was able to use it for exclusive pumping. I managed to express a lot more breastmilk in a shorter time with it and it did not hurt at all! The price of the Forte is fantastic for a hospital grade and closed system breast pump. The parts are very easy to wash and reasonably priced too. I am very happy with my purchase and will likely be getting the Unimom Allegro next month before I begin my year long travel with both my children.
unreliable machine - broke twice!
Purchased a Unimom Forte double and used it once daily for nearly 3 months. In that time the machine broke twice - it just stopped pumping and a loose piece could be heard and instead of being ordered a refund i was only offered a third machine and told to return the junk at my own expense or inconvenience. It was replaced twice and I was tired it was a "faulty batch". I'm not surprised as the machine felt like cheap quality and made breastfeeding a very stressful and anxious time for me as I knew it was not reliable. There is no let down feature and quite loud (next to the M....a which I now use with no problem). I also found after a couple of washes, the suction pads don't fit anymore and milk splashes if you try to use it (had to abandon those quickly). I found the parts were also many and fiddly (sterilising and setting up so many bits took a long time). I cannot recommend this machine for the simple fact it broke twice, I had to haggle with seller to refund me instead of giving me a third machine and I think it is in need of a timer considering it doesn't let down. I was unhappy with my service as not only did I need to argue to get a refund, I had to be inconvenienced to pay for shipping a broken product or drive over an hr to return it on person with a new baby. We did this on two occasions. Very disappointing service after purchasing this machine at the Babies and Pregnancy Expo.
The last thing a breastfeeding mum needs is stress, especially with a newborn so I cannot honestly recommend this machine and suggest you go with a popular reliable brand as this can impact your supply!!! Buyer beware!! Anything Unimom we have completely thrown out as it was faulty and I do not want to promote such an inferior product after my experience.
After a visit to the Pregnancy & Baby Expo and a thorough visit and demo to every breast pump booth, the Unimom stood out as great quality and value as a closed pump system that would best serve my needs. My Unimom Forte gets used daily for up to 30mins and I can’t speak highly enough of it. Its quiet yet powerful & easy to maintain. Fastastic product, and fabulous prompt customer service when I reached out to Eileen.
This pump has been invaluable! Not only did pumping after feeding help me establish my flow, it also set my mind at rest that I had enough flow and as a working mum gave me the ability to express quickly, conveniently and comfortably. The accessories (bottles, cooler bag etc) keep everything neatly organised, which helps with the sanity at this time and above all Eileen from Ubere has been exceptional in her customer service and so reassuring with her advice. I highly recommend making this purchase.
I cannot live without my unimom forte!
I found the unimom forte to be a far superior unit than any other hospital grade pump provided in the hospitals. My little one was in hospital for the first 6 weeks of his life and the unimom forte was a lifesaver to me. Bub is now 7 months old and due to the fact that he suffers from reflux, I have had to express and thicken his fluids all this time. This pump has made that possible. Jennifer and Neil from Tiny Beats were amazing to deal with, posted out my pump so promptly and have always been responsive with all communication.
Excellent product & great after sale service from Ubere.
Brought the pump from friend's recommendation as I wanted a hospital grade & closed system pump. Did not regret purchase! Pump had worked very well from day one. I had a premmie baby and had to start expressing multiple times a day from day one & it hasn't failed on me at all these last 6 months n is still going strong. Compact enough to carry to/fro.
Eileen from Ubere is very prompt in her service and follow up. Very helpful and professional. I needed my pump's suction checked urgently as I was returning to work. Eileen helped sort it out in less than 24 hours! So grateful for that prompt service!
ease of purchase from website, fast delivery. Have used this product for 5 weeks now and makes pumping a breeze. I haven't tried any other pumps before so I don't have anything to compare to, but I believe I made the right choice in purchasing this model. great after sales support. Happy customer will be purchasing more from this site in the future :)
As an Australian consumer I could not recommend these products highly enough to prospective mothers.
I purchased the Unimom Forte breast pump nearly a year ago so that I could continue to breastfeed my baby after returning to work. I had previously tried a manual and battery powered units but the Unimom was much more convenient, easy to use and very effective in obtaining milk.
The Unimom has worked reliably and is compact enough to travel with – I put it in my backpack to ride to work. It has continued to work flawlessly since I bought it. The Unimom enabled me to continue to fully breastfeed my baby until she was 12 months after I returned to part time work when my baby was 7 months.
Whilst the breast pump may or may not be better than other similar units (I've not tried every model on the market) I can definitively say that I would buy a Unimom product via the Australia distributor, as the customer service has been outstanding. The manager/owner of the Australian distributorship is very quick at getting back via phone or email, she is more than willing to help out, offer advice and can always supply spare parts.

excellent customer service and product!
The unimom forte pump is compact, hygenic, easy to use and quiet. I can easily finish double pumping full breasts in approx 7 minutes which is fantastic when break times are limited at work. The pump is also great value for money. Even better is the custumer service from Eileen, australias unimom distributer. She is very responsive if ever a problem arises with the pump and wonderful to deal with. Take comfort in knowing that even though this brand is relatively unknown, if you have any problems, Eileen will go to lengths to sort it out.
Easy to use and compact
A friend of mine recommended this model and I am so glad that she did! Having not known the first thing about breast pumps just knowing that the Unimom Forte is hospital grade gave me the confidence to make the purchase. I am so pleased with the value for money, the quality, the ease of use and the fact this model is so compact. I would highly recommend it to any mum wanting to express.
Excellent! I came back for more
I had my second baby this year and came to the Baby Expo especially to buy the Unimum double pump after being very satisfied with the manual one. Not only it is the most efficient I've tried, it is silent and service was excellent. I can not recommend Unimom products enough!
Ease and comfort
After a bout of severe mastitis that left me struggling to feed I was fortunate to have one of these pumps loaned to me to help with my recovery. Wow. I really wish I'd got one of these much earlier, this unit is so comfortable and at the same time really effective. It's a sealed unit so is really hygienic and easy to clean. I am positive that I made a speedier recovery because of this pump, and I have no hesitation recommending it to every new and expectant mum!
this is amazing! so easy to use
This is fantastic. I was lucky enough to come across this stall at the PPBE and win one of these to try, i hadent heard about this brand before but after doing some research online and trying it out i was so happy with it. From using a manual breast pump to this i was amazed at how much milk i could express in such a short amount of time. It is pain free and easy and is so quick to do. I would defently reccommend this to all breast feeding mums.
Excellent product with superb service!
As a new mom and planning to go back to work, breast pump is something I must have. Read reviews about product available in the market but Unimom wasn't come to the list. Luckily me and my husband went to Sydney baby expo and 'accidentally' found this brand. To be honest I was hesitate to buy one as I am not familiar to it. Even though its a lot cheaper compare to 'familiar' brands, my concern is more about the performance.
Went home and try to ask Mr.Google about the review then having discussion with my hubby we decided to go back to the expo to buy one. And I have no regret buying it since then. I am very happy and pleased with it!!
As I dont have any experience how to use and some others silly questions about breast pump and related topics, the after sale service was beyond my expectation. This is something, I believe, you cant get from its competitors. She was friendly yet very knowledgeable about it. I will definitely recommended new mom to invest their money on this product. Its not just about the saving you will have but also the support while you using it! Keep up the excellent job!!
perfect for a FTM and a working mom!
As a working mom, you need a stable milk supply to exclusively breastfeed your child. On my first week at work after my maternity leave, I was so happy I am pumping 8-9oz per session and I am only using a manual pump. But, as I pump more often than directly nurse my baby, my supply dwindled. From 8-9oz to 2oz per session! I was in the stage of thinking of giving my baby a formula milk. But I can't because my baby was just 3months old back then. I was thinking of having the "best" pump but it was so pricey. Then, one mom recommended unimom forte to me. So I read a lot of comments about unimom forte and almost all comments have positive view and most moms especially those re lactating have used unimom and got great results. I got myself one unimom pump. I washed and sterilize it first because I was very hopeful thinking that I can pump more than 2oz of milk. And after one session, viola! I have pump 6oz of milk! My sister told me, "your supply don't have a problem, your problem is your pump". Until today, I am still exclusively breastfeeding my baby. He will turn 7months on the 6th of June. Thank you very much unimom!
fantastic pump & great service
Being an FTM I had never heard of Unimom before but after a friend in the Mother's Group recommended it I decided to buy it. This pump is fantastic and economical compared to other leading brands. I exclusively pump and I have always had a surplus of breast milk.
I recently had an issue with purchasing a spare part as I was sent the incorrect product by accident. After contacting Ubere Baby I had such a wonderful experience. Not only did I get an apology but I was offered to have the correct product & was given a packet of storage bottles for the inconvenience. I cant recommend this company and their products enough.
Great Breast pump, Great service
With my first baby I used a Medela breast pump - it was VERY noisy, only had 2 settings (one that was too low and one that was painfully high) and could only pump one breast at a time so very time consuming. I wanted to find something better for my second baby and after reading the reviews for the Unimom Forte bought one and can say it is ten times better than the Medela I used last time.
I was surprised at how quiet it is, it doesn't wake my husband or baby when I use it through the night, it has a dial to vary the suction to exactly what is comfortable for your individual needs, it is a double pump so makes pumping much quicker, its a closed system so much more hygienic, and once you know which parts go where its actually really quick and easy to clean and put together, especially since only a few of the parts are actually exposed to breast milk so you don't actually have to clean the whole thing every time just those few parts. To top it off the price was very reasonable compared to what else is available in that price range.
Recently I managed to wreck 2 of the small components while sterilising, I phoned Eileen from Ubere Baby and she was able to supply the parts for $6 each plus postage which was very reasonable. They arrived the day after I paid and Eileen went above and beyond to make sure things went smoothly, she even organised everything and called me back to confirm things whilst being overseas. Before I purchased I read the reviews about the Australian rep for Unimom and how bad the customer service was but I can tell you that the NEW Australian rep Eileen is very friendly, helpful and efficient, couldn't recommend her or the Unimom Forte pump more highly.
