When we started Moms Pump Here 5 years ago we had no idea where the road would take us. We knew right away moms like us needed our GPS tool and clean places to pump. But, we has no clue what our 5 year turn around would look like.
Moms Pump Here started because we had a difficult time finding clean safe places to breast pump. We had to pump in the car, bathroom stalls, and in the most random places. The most notorious location being the bathroom stall (anywhere). If the regular, everyday person is not going to prepare or eat a meal on the bathroom toilet why should a nursing mom? It is such an unsanitary situation with fecal matter in the air. And breast milk is a food! We knew we needed to do something about this so after some research we launched Moms Pump Here.
Moms Pump Here is the first online GPS tool and App helping moms find, rate and share places to breast pump and breastfeed around the world!
Initially the launch covered moms who pumped but we quickly realized breastfeeding moms were also looking for safe comfortable places to nurse. We made it clear moms had the right to nurse in public and welcomed both breast pumping and breastfeeding moms to our locations. Moms Pump Here instantly became an opportunity to educate moms about their nursing rights.
Our first batch of locations included universities and colleges in the United States because of safety. We wanted both public and private locations where safety was a priority and what better place to start than higher institutions. Each location submitted by a mom to Moms Pump Here is immediately vetted to make sure it is a commercial location and the address is correct.
Soon after, with the launch of the Moms Pump Here Nursing Room Locator App, our data became community driven. We supply location information as needed but the majority of the locations found on our App are submitted by moms. These locations range from parks, hospitals, retail stores, stadiums, airports and more! Now we have over 5,000 locations all over the world.
One of the beneficial things about being the go to resource for nursing room locations is an opportunity to grow, expand and provide more resources for moms. After years of providing nursing mom information, blogs and videos we found ourselves in an exciting new niche…health and wellness for nursing moms. So this year we decided to make it official!
Moms Pump Here is now a Health and Wellness company for nursing moms! Our core product will remain the Moms Pump Here Nursing Room Locator App but now with our new found leg room we are launching new products just for nursing moms beginning this Mother’s Day!
We are excited to expand more, to scale our company and provide more options for moms who breast pump and breastfeed. Stay tuned for our new product coming this May!!
