MSP airport opens two private rooms for nursing mothers

MSP airport officials said Wednesday that two nursing stations are now open at Terminal 1.

The private and secure stations are 0n Concourse F, near Gate F2; and on Concourse C, near Gate C12.

Mothers who want to use the rooms can ask at an information booth: for Concourse F use the information booth across from Chili’s in the Airport Mall; for the Concourse C, use the booth across from Gate C12. An airport worker will then unlock the room and an “occupied” message will be shown.

Staff will clean the room after each use.

Officials said the stations have a deep sink for cleaning equipment, electrical outlets, soft lighting, artwork and comfortable seating.

Metropolitan Airports Commission CEO Jeff Hamiel said the rooms were set up because “… for nursing mothers, travel poses an extra challenge – where to comfortably collect their milk.”

Other nursing stations are planned at the airport: at Terminal 2 in 2016, after expansion, and at Terminal 1’s Concourse E later this year.
