Mamava stands up for the rights of mothers (and babies)

Vermont Business Magazine This Mother's Day, Mamava, maker of the world's first free standing lactation suite, is standing in solidarity with breastfeeding mothers and their babes with the release of a video announcing their new mobile locator app. The Mamava app provides a digital solution for the struggle endured by every breastfeeding mom: the lack of dignified space to express breastmilk. The new Mamava app supports moms on the go by locating Mamava lactation suites and over 1200 other Mamava-vetted public lactation rooms.

"We're a company founded by moms for moms. We understand better than anyone the real challenges breastfeeding moms face, and we're changing those realities. This Mother's Day we're celebrating moms and babies with a tool that will enable mom to be supported on this day, and everyday." Sascha Mayer, Mamava CEO and co-founder. "To celebrate our launch, we've created a video that powerfully and emotionally illustrates the story of struggle, solidarity and solution - all from the perspective of those who need it most: the babes."

The app features useful resources including a content feed of tips and information from Mamava's trusted partners, a breastfeeding goal tracker, a personal profile where moms can upload images of their babes for help with milk let-down, and a Mamava guided lactation meditation. For Mamava suites with a keypad lock, the mobile app integrates new proprietary technology to unlock the suites through the Mamava SmartLock – an important security feature for moms.

The app is available now for free on iTunes and in the Google Play Store, and will be officially launching at Techcrunch Disrupt in New York City, May 15th.

About Mamava
Mamava, based in Burlington, Vermont was incubated at Solidarity of Unbridled Labour, a world-renowned design studio. Mamava creates design solutions for breastfeeding mothers on the go. We believe that a woman should be able to breastfeed her baby anywhere she wants to, and we also know there is a need, especially in high-traffic public areas, for a private and comfortable place to use a breast pump or nurse. Mamava is mama owned, made in America, and a proud member of the B Corp community. The free Mamava app for iPhone and Android allows moms to search for pumping and breastfeeding friendly locations.
