|Mamava lactation pod at Jacksonville Airport (JAX)|
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.
Mamava believes that all mamas deserve a safe, clean, and comfortable place to use a breast pump or breastfeed—anywhere, anytime.
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.
