Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are leading the way in supporting breastfeeding moms. In 2014, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter signed an ordinance mandating that employers provide breastfeeding employees with private, sanitary spaces and the necessary time to express breast milk.
Now the beautiful city of Philadelphia now has two locations with Mamava lactation suites.
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has placed two suites, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center one (hopefully with more to come).
Mamava is honored to be in the company of such esteemed institutions as the Philadelphia Children’s Hospital, recently featured in the Ken Burn’s PBS documentary, Cancer: The Emperor of all Maladies, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center home to the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
“We are offering the new suite during meetings and conventions to offer ease and comfort for our guests,” said Lorenz Hassenstein, general manager for center operator SMG. “This is another example of SMG’s commitment to improving the visitor experience at PCC. This new amenity helps us to create a private place within our public environment, enhancing the center’s amenities for women and families.”
The unit at the Pennsylvania Convention Center will be moved according to event needs. (Information about the units latest location can be found at the service desk.)
