Typically, news stories about airlines and breastfeeding are not a positive thing. But not this one! Delta is definitely earning some praise for supporting a breastfeeding mom on a recent flight from Atlanta.
The woman shared this on her Facebook page:
"Yesterday, two flight attendants, Kaitlin K and Loretta, on my flight from Atlanta to Dallas-Love Field, allowed me to sit in an empty first class seat for more space and privacy while I pumped in flight. They offered me snacks and provided TONS of water during my pumping session. Additionally, on my return flight this afternoon, the Dallas-Love Field gate attendant, Talesa, offered me an empty first-class seat so I could do the same. I am incredibly grateful for the lengths these individuals took to make my role as momma much easier and impressed by the advocacy this company has provided for breast-feeding and pumping,"
Jenna, the mom who posted about her great experience, is a mother of triplets (kudos for pumping for 3, mama!).
Many women worry about flying when they have to breastfeed or pump since it is in such close quarters. Hopefully this story will help breastfeeding moms feel more comfortable traveling!
