DENVER, Colo. (CBS4) – Score one for motherhood.
With an assist from a major hospital network, downtown Denver’s professional sports teams are producing a winning combination for new mothers who are avid sports fans.
New nursing suites are being installed at Coors Field, Mile High Stadium, and Pepsi Center.
UCHealth purchased the new Mamava units for mothers to have a secure, private, and comfortable space to breastfeed or pump breast milk while at events.
“You make it work wherever you can but to have something like this is much more convenient. It’s faster, it’s clean, it’s easy… it’s just nice,” said mother Jami Battiato.
In a press release, UCHealth claimed the booths make Denver the “first and only city in U.S. with lactation suites at all downtown pro sports venues.”
The facilities include benches, fold-down tables, locking doors and an electrical outlet for plugging in a breast pump or charging a cellphone.
A media tour of the Coors Field facilities is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Friday.
