ATLANTA - Nursing mothers now have the option to use lactation stations at Atlanta's airport.
Wednesday morning, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport said it now offers four lactation pods to make traveling easier for nursing mothers.
"The pods, designed by Mamava, offer mothers an alternative to nursing or pumping in areas not specifically designed for that purpose," airport officials said in a news release.
The pods offer an "intimate, private location," according to the airport. The four stations are located beyond security checkpoints. They can be found near gates T-7, B-5, D-34 and F-5.
The airport said construction will soon be underway for a pre-security nursing room in the Domestic terminal.
"The suites can be locked from the inside and provide bench seating, a small diaper-changing table, and an electric outlet for pumps," the airport said.
