In response to feedback from lactating staff and learners, Mayo Clinic has installed four Mamava lactation pods in Rochester.
These pods are located at:
Saint Marys Campus
A lactation pod is located near the employee cafeteria in the Mary Brigh building.
Two lactation pods are located in the far end of Eisenberg Cafeteria. One of the pods is handicapped-accessible. An additional lactation pod is in the breakroom on Gonda 9.
Convenience via app
The lactation pods offer a spacious and private environment, and can be accessed with the Mamava app. Through the app, you can see where the pods are located and whether they are available. It is not necessary to book a pod in advance. The app also offers controls to adjust lighting and airflow, as well as helpful lactation resources and quick tips.
You can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
Only lactating staff and learners are permitted to use these pods. Once you are done using a pod, leave it clean for the next user.
