About Our Mamava Lactation Suite
Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation was the first park system in Indiana to offer a portable Mamava lactation suite for nursing moms, located at the Monon Community Center.
This self-contained, mobile pod was created by Mamava, a company dedicated to transforming the culture of breastfeeding. The unit includes comfortable benches, a fold-down table, an electrical outlet for a breast pump and a door that can be locked for privacy. The 4’x8′ pod is meant for individual use, but it can fit more than one person, including mothers with babies and other children in tow.
“Working out at the facility means you are away from your baby hours at a time. Women need appropriate accommodations to pump and we respect that need – both for our members and our employees.” – Kurtis Baumgartner, Assistant Director
From Our Family To Yours
This lactation suite offers a private, sanitary place to pump/nurse your newest addition. Breastfeeding is welcome anywhere, but members or day pass users are always welcome to use the lactation suite as well. Nursing moms can find the suite at the Monon Community Center near the KidZone (childcare) area.
“Until now active women who need to breast pump while away from their babies, have had to pump in a bathroom, or worse yet, stay home due to the lack of amenities for nursing… We believe that all mamas deserve a clean, comfortable and dignified place to use a breast pump or breastfeed distraction-free—anywhere, anytime. Mamava pods provide flexibility for facilities and easy access for moms.” Sascha Mayer, co-founder of Mamava
