I am a busy academic GYN that is currently breastfeeding my second child. I used the Opera pump at Massachusetts General Hospital and I’m in love. I love the ability to place in “alternate” mode and pump right and left breast separately back and forth, massage/letdown mode is extremely efficient. Pump is *very* strong but not painful . Pump is very light weight. Achieved almost 3-4 oz. more than my usual average over the course of my first day of use!

This is far better than most pumps on the market
My sister in law recently had a baby and has had two different pumps she wasn't happy with. She's been using it regularly and loves it. She says it's by far the best. The fact that this is "hospital grade" makes a huge difference. This has great suction and because of its power, you can do double pumping with ease. Most convenient is that you can set two different vacuum settings on each side.
You can have different settings for each side!
I breastfed and pumped for 22 months with my first daughter and I am currently 9.5 months into nursing and pumping for baby number 2. My very first impression upon opening the box and setting the pump up for use it reminded me a lot of the Spectra S2. However this pump is the Spectra on steroids. My FAVORITE feature has to be that you can have different settings for each side. I have been able to get more milk from my “slacker boob” then ever before because I can have a higher suction and cycle on the left then on the right while pumping in the synchronized mode. This is HUGE in my opinion.
The pump is lightweight and very quiet while in use
I have been a loyal Spectra S2 user for a couple of years, and was not sure how the Unimom Opera would compare. But after my first use of the Unimom Opera I was more than impressed. The pump is lightweight and very quiet while in use. I love the fact that it has two motors, and you can adjust the speed and suction settings for each breast. It is so convenient that the pump registers those same settings at the next use. The thing that impressed me the most was that it cut my pumping time down by about half!
I'm in love!
I just wanted to let you know I’m in love! Got At least 3oz more than average yesterday (usually 9-11oz at 6 months, yesterday 14!). Love the alternate mode, ability to pump one side alone, suction is great. Let down mode is fast. Easy to clean and assemble flange part. Nice and light!
Several different options foryou to choose from.
Ihave tried a few different pumps and this one is by far the strongestsuction I have had. It truly does make a difference to have a "hospitalgrade" pump. I like how this pump has several different options foryou to choose from. I personally prefer to pump both sides at the sametime, but I know there are some moms who get more milk when doing oneside at a time. I have never seen the option to do an alternate orsynchronous pump before and this has been nice for me to try both ways.I do prefer the synchronous option, but some may find they get moremilk with the alternate pump option.
Powerful, comfortable, and dynamic.
I LOVE THIS PUMP. The very first time I used it I was able to pump 1oz more than normal and this was also during my menstrual cycle when I usually have a huge dip in output. I would recommend this pump to my patients over and over again. I use it everyday and has quickly become my go to pump. It’s powerful, comfortable, dynamic, and even has light for the middle of the night pumpers. The pros far outweigh the cons in my opinion.
Rechargeable battery that can keep the pump running for 2-3 hours.
We welcomed our daughter in this word a few weeks back and my wife uses a breast pump that she got through insurance. She wanted to have another one to keep in her office so that she doesn’t have to carry one daily. By comparison, she likes this one better for the suction power it offers and a few other features that are lacking in the other pump we have. Firstly, it has a rechargeable battery that can keep the pump running for 2-3 hours. That means she doesn’t have to have it connected to power in the office when she is working. And the 4 different modes are also very good, especially the right only and left only mode. And it can be operated at different power for both sides because of the dual motors that power each side separately.
Totally recommend it
I love the fact that this is rechargeable so that I don’t have to worry about unnecessary wiring, and the charge lasts you for quite some time… truly a convenience. It looks super cool and comfortable. The suction power can be adjusted, and it definitely can be very effective in suctioning adequately. The touch controls are super cool and add to the comfortable user experience.
You can set it so it suctions one side, or both sides. It also remembers the levels you that you used it prior, so when you turn it on all is set.
I must add that the machine is not loud. It is compact and convenient to carry.
I would totally recommend it if you are breast feeding and require a pump. Thank you.
