Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) announced today the first Mamava suite installation in Mississippi airports, a self-contained, mobile pod with comfortable benches, a fold-down table, an electrical outlet for a breast pump 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.
“The Jackson Municipal Airport Authority is proud to take a progressive stance in supporting these women. The very least we can do is to create a supportive and safe environment for mothers who choose to breastfeed,” said CEO, Carl Newman, A.A.E. “This is only the beginning. We look forward to providing more in the future.”
