CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Life is getting a little easier for nursing moms if they plan on visiting the Huntington Convention Center. The center recently installed two portable lactation suites. The private suites give moms a quiet and comfortable place to nurse their babies. The suites are created by Mamava, a Vermont-based company. They are self-contained that come with electrical outlets, and a door that can lock for privacy.

"Up until recently, moms have had to pump milk in the bathroom while they are away from their babies working or attending conferences if the show planners haven't designated a space," said Sascha Mayer, co-founder of Mamava.

You can find the two portable stations near the entrance to Exhibit Hall C, on the concourse level near Meeting Room 1, the Global Center Atrium escalator landing, and the entrance to Exhibit Hall A, where they can breastfeed or pump in comfort and privacy.
