Traveling and breastfeeding don’t always mix together so well. Luckily, Mamava is dedicated to alleviating some of that stress. The company, which is the brains behind the genius lactation suites in many public spaces, updated its app with even more features to make it easier for moms to breastfeed in a comfortable environment while they travel to and fro.

The app locates Mamava pods in public places and helps mothers find other pump-friendly locations. Plus, Mamava pods with Bluetooth-enabled SmartLock access can easily be opened right from the app.

Here are some of the life-saving features the app offers:

  • An easy way for moms to share, rate, review and add photos of their favorite places to breastfeed and pump on the go
  • Words of Support, which lets mamas leave a digital note for the next mama in the pod
  • Tips, videos, and other practices to make for a more positive breastfeeding experience

“What was once created as a simple mobile locator app to find a Mamava pod has evolved into something larger than we ever expected,” says Sascha Mayer, CEO and co-founder of Mamava. “The app has become a digital sphere for a vibrant community of nursing mamas to help each other on their breastfeeding journeys by recommending new spaces and offering words of support.

Mamava now has 600 pods in 43 states and Washington D.C., including airports, train stations, malls, hospitals, universities, corporate offices, sports stadiums, schools and zoos.
