DENVER — The Denver Broncos and official health care partner UCHealth announced today they are bringing a new nursing suite to Sports Authority Field at Mile High ahead of Denver's home preseason opener on Aug. 26. The Mamava lactation suite is located in the main concourse inside Gate 6.
UCHealth also purchased and installed nursing suites in the concourses at Pepsi Center and Coors Field, making Denver the first city in the United States with lactation suites at all downtown professional sports venues. Recognizing the need to support nursing moms visiting the venues, the sports teams collaborated with UCHealth to provide the clean and comfortable spaces for pumping or nursing in private.
"UCHealth's commitment to improving lives extends beyond the doors of our hospitals and clinics," Manny Rodriguez, UCHealth chief marketing and experience officer said. "Our investment in nursing suites with our partners at all of Denver's downtown professional sports venues makes it easier for nursing moms attending events—from games to concerts—to live extraordinary lives doing what they love, with their loved ones."
Mamava designs solutions for nursing moms on the go. The nursing suite is a self-contained, mobile pod, with comfortable benches, a fold-down table, an electrical outlet for plugging in a breast pump and a door that can be locked for privacy. The 4-foot by 8-foot pod is intended for individual use, but has plenty of room for mothers with diaper bags, babies and other children in tow.
