ASHEVILLE, N.C. (PRWEB) May 16, 2018 -- Aeroflow Breastpumps Partners with pumpspotting To Bring The Breast Express to Asheville
The Breast Express
Friday, June 8 in Pack Square
10am - 2pm
The Breast Express, a colorful 40-foot bus traveling across the country, is making a stop in Asheville. With the goal of raising awareness and support for breastfeeding, the stop is part of a multi-city tour that kicked off in April at the MIT “Make The Breast Pump Not Suck!” Hackathon.
“We are so excited to welcome The Breast Express to Asheville,” said Jennifer Jordan, Director of Mom and Baby at Aeroflow Healthcare. “Working with tens of thousands of moms every year, we understand how important it is to support all moms on their breastfeeding journey.” She added, “As a company that started in Asheville, and continues to grow here, we are committed to being an active supporter of the WNC breastfeeding community, so the fact that we are able to play a role in bringing this to our own hometown is very special to our company and employees.”
The Breast Express is scheduled to be in Asheville June 7-9, and activities will include “Surprise and Delight” stops at various locations in addition to the main event on June 8 from 10am - 2pm in Pack Square, which will feature milk mocktails, a nursing and pumping suite where Moms can talk to lactation experts, and information on how moms can qualify for a no cost breast pump through insurance.
The Breast Express team has also partnered with regional breastfeeding advocates to create a panel discussion “Breastfeeding and Pumping in the Workplace. What Employers and Employees Need To Know,” to be held on Thursday, June 7 at Highland Brewing from 5pm - 7pm. Local employers and families are encouraged to attend for this informative discussion, as well as have the chance to ask questions.
Amy Van Haren, founder of pumpspotting and the force behind The Breast Express, knows this is about more than the event, “Our hope is that this journey sparks a movement and together, we can change perceptions, places, and ultimately, the percentage of women who meet their breastfeeding goals.”
“This event has already started conversations in the Asheville community among local businesses, lactation professionals, doulas, and civic leaders around how we can better serve our moms,” said Jordan. “Our hope, our belief, is that The Breast Express is just the beginning of ongoing partnerships and real dialogue in our community.”
