The modular lactation station allows a mother to breast-feed her baby or use a breast pump in a private spot designed with her in mind, with Corian surfaces, soft lighting, a fold-down table and even a power supply for a pumping machine.
The first one was unveiled Thursday at Burlington International Airport in Vermont and the company behind it, Burlington-based Mamava, is hoping many more will follow.

Nursing mothers know well the challenges of trying to feed their babies while away from home.louis vuitton purse Discreet nursing covers or shawls allow a degree of privacy when breast-feeding in public, though some mothers who are still shy about it may do it in a corner or even in a bathroom stall.
Mothers who must pump their milk have an even tougher time finding a place to do it in public. A bathroom stall is often the only option, but it\'s less than desirable -- imagine sitting on a public toilet while balancing a pump (or baby), listening to the sound of flushing toilets all around and knowing other women can hear the kshhh-kshhh of the pump every few seconds.[url=http://www.louisvuittonpurseforsale.com title=louis vuitton purse for sale]louis vuitton purse for sale[/url]

Mamava hopes to put pods in other airports or public places like conference centers and malls, Mayer says. They\'re also working on a foldable design that could be used in small workplaces and then put away when not in use.

Mayer said she doesn\'t want women to choose against breast-feeding just because it\'s too difficult.
