Discover the Power of Elvie

Founded in 2013 by Tania Boler, Elvie have brought two incredible devices into the women’s health market, the Pelvic Floor Trainer and the Single Electric Breast Pump. Shining new light onto common women’s health issues, Elvie devices are revolutionary in targeting common struggles that needed modern solutions. In an exclusive interview with Tania, we asked to learn more about these two bestselling devices and what kickstarted her fantastic brand.

Question: What’s the story of Elvie and what inspired you to start your own brand?

I’ve always been passionate about women’s health – I have a PhD in HIV prevention and was working in research. I never planned to start a company but when I got pregnant, I realised there were so many simple issues to do with motherhood which nobody talked about and were completely neglected by technology.

Question: Who is the Pelvic Floor Trainer designed for?

Every woman who wants to feel stronger from the inside. Pelvic floor problems, including incontinence, are surprisingly common, affecting 1 in 3 women, and up to 80% of expectant and new mums. The problem is that most women don’t think about doing pelvic floor exercises until they are pregnant, or start to experience issues like bladder weakness or prolapse. Exercising your pelvic floor really should be a part of every woman’s daily routine and can prevent so many future health issues.

Question: What are the main benefits from using the Elvie Pelvic Floor Trainer?

There are many! Every woman who wants to feel stronger from the inside, improve and maintain their bladder control, sexual sensation, or reduce back pain can benefit from regular effective Kegel exercises.

Question: How many times per week should women use the Elvie Trainer?

We suggest using Elvie Trainer three times a week as a minimum for most effective results. The most important thing is to fit them into your daily routine – our kegel trainer workouts are only five-minutes long and game-like to make it feel fun.

Question: Is it safe to use the Elvie during pregnancy?

Yes, Elvie Trainer can be used throughout pregnancy. Every pregnancy is unique so we recommend you consult a health professional before use.

Question: How soon do women start to see improvements when using the Elvie?

With regular use, most women see results with Elvie Trainer in less than two weeks.

Question: What are the main benefits of the Elvie Pump Single Electric Breast Pump?

Pumping is often an isolating experience, confined to toilet cubicles and stationery cupboards. Women don’t want to spend hours daily plugged into a wall or cleaning and sterilising tubes. Women have been calling for a new breast pump and whilst we’ve seen some innovation as a result, they’ve mostly have been very small improvements to the existing technology, which is both noisy and cumbersome.

The newer products still miss the mark. We recognized the opportunity to completely change the way mums pump, whether at home, work or on-the-go, and we knew we’d have to start from scratch for it to be truly different to the other products on offer. Elvie Pump is the world’s first silent wearable breast pump. It slips directly into a standard nursing bra and offers a new level of discretion when pumping. Elvie Pump is completely app controlled so there’s no fiddling around in your bra once it’s pumping. It’s a complete departure from existing pump architecture and is a total game changer in its category. No other Pump offers freedom and control like Elvie Pump does.
