“Just in time for the busy summer travel season, SAT is providing a much-desired amenity for traveling families,” says Tom Jones, San Antonio Aviation Director, “Mothers will find the lactation station a clean, calm and comfortable place to nurse and care for their babies.”
SAT currently has a pre-security nursing room located in Terminal A but decided to add the lactation stations post security to accommodate more passengers. The stations are freestanding, ADA compliant kiosks with seating and a power-supply to plug in a pump or an entertainment device with additional space for luggage or a stroller. The stations give nursing mothers a safe, clean, functional, private and relaxing space to pump or nurse when they are away from home or work.
SAT’s lactation suites are manufactured by Mamava, a Vermont-based company dedicated to transforming the culture of breastfeeding.
