Crypto.com Arena Elevates Guest Experience With Five Mamava Lactation Pods
The Downtown Los Angeles Arena Creates Inclusive Experience Supporting Guests, Fans and Team Members
Los Angeles, October 3, 2023 — Today Crypto.com Arena, one of the most iconic and globally recognized sports and entertainment arenas in the world, debuted five Mamava Lactation Pods, creating an inclusive experience for guests as well as meeting the needs of breastfeeding employees who need private pumping accommodations.
The Mamava pods are placed strategically across the arena, with two on the Main Concourse, one on Premium Level A, and two on the Upper Concourse. Mamava is transforming the culture of breastfeeding by making it easier for more parents to pump or nurse at work and on the go. Mamava’s freestanding lactation pods are intentionally designed to provide a comfortable and private option to breastfeed or pump. The pods can be accessed through the free Mamava mobile app, which helps parents find thousands of lactation spaces (not just Mamava pods) and empowers parents to share encouraging “Words of Support” notes with other breastfeeding parents.
“Providing all of our guests and team members with a safe and inclusive experience at Crypto.com Arena is our number one priority,” Amber Watts, Senior Director, Guest Services, Crypto.com Arena. “By partnering with Mamava and providing nursing parents an exclusive place to breast pump or feed a baby while attending an event in a safe and distraction free area is a wonderful addition to our guest experience.”

Crypto.com Arena is not only making it easier for parents to get out and enjoy sporting events and shows but also helping to normalize breastfeeding and increasing equitable access to
lactation support for the next generation.”
