For someone unfamiliar with Moms Pump Here, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Moms Pump Here is an App and the first online GPS for moms to find, rate and share nursing room locations to breastfeed and breast pump. Created by moms for moms, there are 2,000 locations in the United States, US Territories, Canada, Australia and Singapore among other countries, where moms on the go can locate comfortable places to nurse or pump.
What was the inspiration behind the company’s beginning? How has it evolved over time?
Co-Founders Priya Nembhard and Kim Harrison were inspired with the idea to start Moms Pump Here when Kim had a horrible experience breast pumping in a dirty bathroom at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, attending a conference. Kim contacted college friend Priya Nembhard, a serial entrepreneur, about her experience and thought that something should be done about it. Both Priya and Kim quickly realized, as breastfeeding moms, there was never a resource available to find places to nurse or breast pump. Both Priya and Kim are moms of 3 children, each breastfed and breast pumped. They knew how difficult it was for women to find clean, safe places to nurse or pump because they experienced it firsthand.
Priya and Kim also passionately believe that moms should have choices because every woman has the right to breastfeed in public or private places, anywhere she is allowed to be without discrimination or harassment. No one should be forced to pump or nurse in a dirty bathroom or parked car or shamed in public. If a mom wants to use a comfy private space to breastfeed or breast pump they can easily use the App to find a location.
What are the most popular and newest features from Moms Pump Here?
Moms Pump Here is launching its 2.0 version of the Nursing Room Locator App at the 2016 New York Baby Show.
