About Us


Barry Bailey was a young, not-yet-employed-in-his-field, mechanical engineer when his first daughter, Alice was born over 21 years ago. As he did with every other machine in the household, Barry took apart the breast pump that Alice's mother had rented to see how it worked. With the idea that he could make a more affordable, but still quite functional pump, Barry took to his workshop (the kitchen table) and sure enough, within the year his first breast pumps were sold to the lactation consultant at a local hospital.

The world of breast pumps has changed dramatically since then, with many more options available on the market. The Nurture III has evolved somewhat from its humble beginnings, but it is still a basic, no-frills, hard-working breast pump designed with the needs of working women in mind. Bailey Medical Engineering has expanded its product line to include other practical breastfeeding-related items, but we remain a small, friendly company (because we like it that way).

Mission Statement

Bailey Medical Engineering believes that breastfeeding is an important step toward healthier children and a better society. We are committed to helping mothers exercise their right to breastfeed by providing relevant information and products distinguished by integrity and value. We strive to nurture growth, creativity, initiative and excellence in ourselves and to be a positive presence in our community, our homes and our workplace.
