Burlington-based Mamava and online retailer Zappos have teamed up and installed deluxe lactation pods in the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The six pods, covered with images of smiling babies, feature lactation pad dispensers, cleaning wipes and trash cans. An upgraded Mamava app features a special soundtrack with baby giggles and ocean waves meant to get the milk flowing. The company, founded by Sascha Mayer and Christine Dodson in 2013, aims to support nursing mothers by providing a clean, private place for them to nurse and pump. It has installed hundreds of lactation suites in diverse locations across the country, ranging from Burlington International Airport and Fenway Park to the Bronx Zoo and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. There are currently 75 Mamava suites in 37 airports across the country. Said one Instagram user, in reaction to Atlanta's new addition: "Waiting for my turn in the pump pod. These things are amazing and should really be everywhere."
