As an expectant parent, you have a list of things to buy to prepare for your new bundle of joy: a crib, baby bottles, diapers, wipes, and a breast pump. Though Edgepark Medical Supplies cannot help with all your baby items, it can make your life a whole lot easier by delivering your medical supplies, including breast pumps and accessories, directly to your door step. They even handle all of the paperwork and deal with your insurer. That means less time haggling and more time cuddling with your baby.
Edgepark will be at the 2017 Chicago Baby Show, on August 26 and 27, at Navy Pier, when the nation’s largest show for expectant and new families comes to Chicagoland. A family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler – from top products to trusted parenting experts – the Chicago Baby Show will welcome thousands of expectant and new parents from Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and beyond!
Tickets to the Chicago Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.

For someone unfamiliar with Edgepark, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
At Edgepark, our mission is to provide our customers with the best answer to their medical supply needs. As a longtime industry leader in the home delivery of medical supplies, Edgepark offers nearly 40,000 products, including insurance-covered breast pumps and accessories, ostomy, diabetes, wound care, urological, incontinence supplies, and much more. Since we contract with more than 700 manufacturers, customers have access to the brands they prefer, and those that health care professionals recommend.
We simplify the ordering process for our customers by verifying their insurance coverage, obtaining their prescription, and handling all of their paperwork. Depending on the product, we accept Medicare, Managed Medicaid, select State Medicaids, and over 1,300 health plans nationwide to help customers save money.
We conveniently ship orders right to the customer’s door for free with shipping time of one to two business days to 99% of the U.S. population. To ensure customers do not run out of supplies, we send them convenient reminders when it’s time for their next order, and then confirm their supply needs before shipping.
Tell us about Edgepark. When did it start, and how has it evolved since then?
Edgepark opened in 1928 as a small, family-owned pharmacy in Ohio and has grown to become a trusted provider of home-delivered medical products, including breast pumps and accessory products. Our decades of experience allow us to offer customers an extensive selection of supplies and brands, comprehensive insurance coverage, and hassle-free ordering. We remain focused on our original values: a commitment to deliver caring service to each and every customer.

What distinguishes Edgepark from other medical supply providers?
Edgepark’s extensive breadth of product choice, access to a comprehensive network of insurance coverage, and genuine commitment to helping our customers and their loved ones live their best lives help set us apart from other medical supply providers.
What can parents expect to see from Edgepark at the Chicago Baby Show?
Parents, and in particular expectant mothers, can expect to receive an invaluable education on how to maximize their insurance benefits—consistent with their health plan guidelines—when ordering their breast pump and supplies. Under the Affordable Care Act, most health insurance plans are required to cover breast pumps, which means expectant moms may receive their breast pump for little to no out-of-pocket cost. Edgepark makes the ordering process convenient and hassle-free by handling the insurance and prescription paperwork for moms, and then conveniently shipping their items for free right to their home.
