A pod appeared in the Rockville Science Center in October. Have you seen it? Do you wonder what it is? No, it is not a "tiny house". It is a Mamava Lactation Suite. Montgomery College is piloting the Mamava Lactation Suite for new mothers' to nurse their babies or to express breast milk.
Mothers who self-identify a need will be directed to the Title IX Coordinator Christopher Moy. He will issue a proximity card to the mother with a mutually agreed upon expiration date which can be extended upon request. The proximity card is compatible with the campus' lock system. Use of the Mamava is first come, first serve. Mothers are responsible for their own pump and ice packs for storage, paper products, etc. The restroom is down the hall. There will ultimately be a single lactation suite/campus.
The Mamava Lactation Suite Locator "Mamava On-the-Go" is a free app to find the Mamava and/or public nursing room nearest you. It is available in IOS and Android versions. The College's Mamava is visible on the app.
For further information about the Mamava Lactation Suite or to download the app, go to mamava.com. For further information about Central Facilities' plans to meet the facilities needs of our students contact Sandra Filippi at (240) 567-7362 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
