Bellingham International Airport Installs Mamava Lactation Suites

The Port has installed two Mamava lactation suites at the Bellingham International Airport (BLI). They are located in both pre- and post-security areas of the commercial terminal for breastfeeding mothers.

The suites are created by Mamava, a company dedicated to transforming the culture of breastfeeding by making it easier for more women to achieve their breastfeeding needs.  The Mamava suite is a self-contained, mobile pod with comfortable benches, a table, an electrical outlet for plugging in a breast pump, and a door that can be locked for privacy.

“We’re thrilled to support breastfeeding mamas at BLI,” said Sascha Mayer, Co-founder and CEO of Mamava.  “We believe that all mamas deserve a clean, comfortable, and dignified place to use a breast pump or breastfeed distraction-free—anywhere, anytime.  Mamava pods provide flexibility for facilities and easy access for moms.” 

“Bellingham International Airport is in the business of customer service and we know that our customers include traveling families,” said Sunil Harman, Director of Aviation. “The addition of the Mamava suites at BLI will give traveling mothers one less thing to worry about when using our airport.”

BLI’s Mamava suites are ADA compliant and are located pre-security, across from the TSA checkpoint and post-security, adjacent to Gate E.  The Mamava pod can be unlocked by downloading the free Mamava app on iOS and Android devices.  The app also includes a location finder feature to identify one of the 1,000+ pods across the United States and Canada.
