The Garden’s Latest Amenity, a Lactation Pod, is Now Open
The Garden is excited to present a new amenity for both Garden guests and staff: a Mamava Lactation Pod!
As an additional option for nursing parents, the Garden now has a Lactation Pod located inside the Francis Young Hall to provide a safe and private area for nursing parents to take care of the needs of their child. The pod is made to fit one nursing parent at a time. To ensure privacy, there is a padlock for use once inside. While the pod will be sanitized throughout the day, we ask that anyone who uses the pod help us keep the area clean by picking up after themselves and making sure to not leave any items behind.
To ensure comfort, the pod is air-conditioned and well-ventilated with two seating areas on either side of the pod (though please note that only nursing parents and their dependents are allowed inside), an electrical outlet, a mirror and two shelves. We ask that the pod is used for lactation purposes only. For any diaper-changing needs, please use the changing tables in the bathrooms.
Of course, parents are welcome to care for their children anywhere they feel comfortable in the Garden. The Mamava pod is just an option for those who prefer a private space, and we are proud to offer the amenity as we work to be a Garden for all.
