0

At least 100 Walmart Shops are getting a new addition this year.

Last week the retail trade giant announced it would install nursing capsules for customers and employees at 100 locations in the United States.

The pods “are free-standing spaces that offer a clean, comfortable, and private option for breastfeeding or pumping,” the announcement reads.

The pods designed by Mamavawill be free to use and according to Walmart can be accessed via the company’s app Notice.

The Mamava app also allows moms to customize the lighting, airflow, and sounds inside the pods.

Over the past year, Walmart has been testing Mamava pods at three locations. After installing the new ones this year, the company plans to install more “in the coming years,” the announcement said.

“There’s nothing quite like the Mamava capsule,” Julie Murphy, EVP of People at Walmart US, said in a statement. “We strongly believe in what Mamava is doing to support moms and the experience the pods create. We are very excited to be able to offer this to moms who work and shop in our stores.”

“We started Mamava to ensure that every breastfeeding mother could choose whether or not to breastfeed, so we set out to remove all barriers to that choice,” said Sascha Mayer, CEO and co-founder of Mamava, in one Explanation. “Walmart’s commitment to supporting breastfeeding employees and community members with Mamava pods is a huge step forward for inclusion and the normalization of breastfeeding culture.”
