This past Monday, we had the pleasure of celebrating a new Mamava at our local mall with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont (BCBSVT). Recognizing the need to better support our nursing moms, BCBSVT sponsored a suite that can now be found in the food court at the University Mall. Nursing moms visiting, shopping, and working at the mall can now expect a clean, private, and comfortable place to pump or feed privately (and rest assured they're welcome to breastfeed wherever they like!).
To celebrate the new pod, Mamava and BCBSVT hosted a kick off event at the University Mall earlier this week. The event was a hit. Moms from all over the state came to show their support, joining us for morning interviews with Local News Channels 22 and 44, talking openly about the challenges of being a nursing mom either on the go or at work, and then for some prenatal yoga by Evolution Yoga, and workshops led by lactation consultants and nutritionists.
We were thrilled to attract so many grateful moms and we had a blast chatting with everyone who attended the event. A huge thank you goes to Healthy Living Market for sponsoring the event with healthy snacks and fun goody bags for our mamas! We left feeling pretty grateful to be among such a wonderful community. Thank you for coming out to show your support!
