Enlightening Workplaces: BuddhaBooth and MommaWork Announce Groundbreaking Partnership
It is a match made in Nirvana; the highly sought-after portable, convenient, customizable and soundproof meditation pods are now being dually used by companies as sleek, elegant, legally compliant lactation rooms.
With an increasing number of municipalities requiring employers to provide lactation spaces for breastfeeding moms to express their breastmilk during the workday, MommaBooths offer a private, elegant solution. Under the law, employers must provide a space that is not a bathroom. When office space is limited, and further buildouts are not possible, MommaBooths offer the perfect solution. These compact, lightweight booths fit nearly anywhere, eliminating the stress of converting existing office space into lactation space for the breastfeeding mother. When the need for lactation space is complete, the MommaBooth can easily transform into a chic meditation space, perfect for helping employees recharge.

With a return to work often cited as the number one reason moms stop breastfeeding, this partnership will allow more moms to continue the breastfeeding relationship and reap the long-term health benefits for mom and baby, with gratitude to their employer for their support."
BuddhaBooth founder Francine Steadman, mother of three, is in complete agreement. She states, "Our ultimate goal of providing private serene spaces for multiple sectors is amplified by the privilege of sharing our MommaBooths to support working moms and their commitment to continued nursing. Employers can count on the portability of our units which create easy "access-within-
