We Hear You Series: Private Areas to Feed Your Baby

Mamava station at Heater Road

Patients and visitors often comment that there are no private areas in which to pump, breast or bottle-fed babies at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) or Heater Road. Thanks to funding from Friends of the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) fundraising events and support from Nursing leadership and the Birthing Pavilion, there are now four Mamava Lactation Suites located at DHMC and one at Heater Road. These units provide a private, clean and comfortable space for mothers to pump or nurse their babies.

Mamava Lactation Suites are located in the following areas:

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center:

  • Level 1: North Entrance Waiting Area
  • Level 3: Across from the East Mall Café and near the Spiral Staircase and Moose
  • Level 5: Outside the Matthew-Fuller Library

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Heater Road

  • Level 2: Primary Care
