Raleigh-Durham International Airport Installs a Lactation Suite
Created by Mamava, this will be the first lactation suite in a North Carolina airport
The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority installed a Mamava Suite in Terminal 1 of Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) yesterday for moms traveling through the airport and seeking privacy and security to feed their babies. The suite is located near gate A-6. In June, RDU will add a Mamava Suite in Terminal 2 on the C concourse near gate C-8.
Created by Mamava, a company dedicated to transforming the culture of breastfeeding by making it easier for more women to breastfeed their babies on the go, the Mamava suite is a self-contained, mobile pod with comfortable benches, a fold-down table, an electrical outlet and a door that can be locked for privacy. The 4-foot by 8-foot pod is meant for individual use, but can fit more than one person, as well as mothers with babies and other children in tow.
“We are delighted to offer this new complimentary suite for moms on the go, so they feel truly welcome and comfortable at the airport,” says Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority President and CEO Michael Landguth. “We want to be the airport of preference for all travelers, whether they have a baby or briefcase in tow.”
