Rapid City Regional Airport unveils
a new lactation pod for parents.
Rapid City Regional Airport has recently unveiled a new Mamava lactation pod to cater to the needs of nursing parents. The pod is a self-contained, standalone structure
that provides a comfortable, handicap-accessible, and private space for breastfeeding or pumping. The pod is located post-security, near Gate 7, and is accessible via a keypad code.
"At Rapid City Regional Airport, we take pride in being at the forefront of accessibility. Our commitment to providing high-quality services and facilities extends to all passengers, including nursing parents," said Chris Deitz, Airport Director of Operations & Maintenance
“We’re thrilled to support breastfeeding at Rapid City Regional Airport,” said Sascha Mayer, co-founder and CEO of Mamava. “We believe that all breastfeeding parents
deserve a dignified place to breast pump or feed a baby
distraction-free—anywhere, anytime. Rapid City Regional Airport is helping normalize breastfeeding and increasing equitable access to lactation support for the next generation.”
Mamava is dedicated to transforming the culture of breastfeeding. The free Mamava app helps breastfeeding parents find thousands of (Mamava-vetted) lactation places to pump or nurse on the go and unlock Mamava pods. Women-owned and a proud B corp, Mamava designs, engineers, and assembles lactation pods in the USA.
