Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) has installed two Mamava lactation suites, which are designed to give mothers privacy while traveling through the airport. The new suite in Terminal 1 is located near gate A-6, and the suite in Terminal 2 is located on Concourse C near gate C-8.
Mamava’s mission is to transform the the culture of breastfeeding by making it easier for mothers to breastfeed on the go. The lactation suites are self-contained mobile pods with 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 designed so that additional children can accompany their mother inside.
“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 Michael Landguth, president and CEO of RDU. “We want to be the airport of preference for all travelers, whether they have a baby or briefcase in tow.”
