Austin-Bergstrom opens nursing station for mothers

Austin-Bergstrom opens nursing station for mothers

Austin-BergstromĀ  airport is now giving nursing mothers a quiet place to pump or breastfeed when they travel.

The Texas airport has opened a Mamava suite-style nursing station.

Inside the soft lighted nursing suite are two bench seats, a small fold-down table, electrical and USB outlets, a mirror, and a door that can be closed for privacy. The station door displays an occupied lock sign when in use and is large enough, 4 feet by 8 feet, to comfortably fit a breast pump, carry-on luggage or stroller, and another parent or siblings.

The lactation suite is free and available on a first come, first serve basis.

Complimentary wipes and diapers, sizes 1-3, will be available in the suite from May 9-13 or while supplies last.

Location

Across from Gate 7, in the Barbara Jordan Terminal, the station is located in front of the Austin International Sister Cities Exhibit. The location provides a more private and comfortable place to pump and nurse in the airport.
