While gearing up for the Super Bowl this weekend, I was cruising through some different stories and came across one that would actually appeal to me.
It wasn’t about the players, or the New York – New England rivalry, it was about breastfeeding.
Yup, nursing and football.
The Indiana Perinatal Network is offering the first lactation consultations at this year’s Super Bowl, offering moms a private space to breastfeed. The room itself looks amazing too. It has comfortable chairs and even includes a hospital-grade breast pump just in case a situation comes up where a mother would need to use it.
Why is this impressive to me?
While I may not care about breastfeeding in public anymore, there was a point in time that I did, and I was actually bothered by the thought of doing it. And I know there are other breastfeeding mothers out there who feel the same way. I wouldn’t want a mother to have to skip out on such a huge game because they don’t want to breastfeed in the stadium.
Wouldn’t you want to nurse there? You can see all the photos of the Super Bowl lactation room on the Indiana Perinatal Network’s Facebook page.
