Mamava lactation pods

Mamava lactation pod at Jacksonville Airport (JAX)

Mamava believes that all mamas deserve a safe, clean, and comfortable place to use a breast pump or breastfeed—anywhere, anytime.

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers, and good news for lactating travelling moms who may not have heard the news: Mamava just may be in the next airport you visit, ready to give you a little slice of privacy.

The Mamava modular suite, or pod, offers nursing mothers a clean and beautifully designed space to pump/nurse when they are away from home or at work. And that includes airports.

Read the story behind the creation of Mamava: the initial idea, the philosophy that drove the concept forward, the design of the pods, and it's current iteration. With a goal of 100 pods by Mother's Day, Mamava is well on its way to becoming a widespread convenience.

In keeping with its purpose, Mamava has installed its innovative lactation pods in 13 North American airports so far, including:

It's an interesting concept, and long overdue. We can certainly understand mothers everywhere wishing there were a Mamava pod at their local airport.

In the meantime, you can visit the website to see non-airport Mamava pod locations, such as schools, malls, hospitals, stadiums and so on.

You can even nominate where you want to see a Mamava pod (hashtag  #IWANTMYMAMAVA). Let's grow that list of airport Mamava locations!
