Events Industry Caters to Nursing Moms

By Natalie Dupuis, June 7, 2016

According to a 2013 study by the U.S. Department of Labor, nearly 60 percent of women with a baby under 1 year old are in the workforce—many of whom are required to attend off-site meetings. For nursing moms, many challenges come with traveling for a conference, with or without their little one in tow. Among those is finding a clean, safe space to nurse or pump (aka not simply a public restroom).

“After having pumped at trade shows, airports, corporate retreats, baseball games and even the back seat of a male client’s car, we decided enough was enough,” says Sascha Mayer, co-founder of Mamava, a company devoted to solving this issue for nursing moms.

Mamava Suites, first created in 2013, are private, stationary, freestanding pods for moms to nurse or pump in that can be found at airports, convention centers and other venues around the country. Even better for meeting planners, Mamava recently launched an inflatable, pop-up version of the suite, which debuted at the Women in Aviation International conference in March.
