Santa Barbara airport adds lactation pod for traveling parents

Via Santa Barbara Airport

Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) is proud to announce the newest amenities for a traveling parent needing a private space to breastfeed or express milk while using our terminal, a secure and private breastfeeding pod. This new facility is on the second floor of the terminal building, past the TSA security checkpoint and just to the right of Gate 2.

A parent who needs this facility can access the Lactation Pod through the Mamava app, available for Apple and Android devices. This smart lock technology ensures parent’s safety and security to breastfeed or pump in private. The lactation pod is private, comfortable and spacious, with controllable lighting and airflow, an electrical outlet for a pump, a bench seat and enough room for a stroller. The size and design of the lactation pod is also wheelchair accessible and incorporates handrail functionality.

The SBA administration also took great care in the custom design of the lactation module. Both inside and out, it blends seamlessly into the Spanish style of terminal design and provides a beautiful and inspiring space for traveling mothers while in use.
