Delta flight attendants were amazing to this breastfeeding mama, and she wants to spread the word.
People love to take to social media when they have something to complain about. Especially when it comes to the controversy surrounding breastfeeding and expressing breast milk in public.
But nursing mom Jenna Mde took to Facebook in order to heap praise upon Delta Airlines for going above and beyond in accommodating her efforts to pump breast milk while away from her triplets on a recent round trip between Atlanta and Dallas.
"As a breastfeeding mother to triplets, it's important that I not miss a breast-pumping session, especially when traveling," she wrote. "Yesterday, two flight attendants, Kaitlin K and Loretta, on my flight from Atlanta to Dallas-Love Field, allowed me to sit in an empty first class seat for more space and privacy while I pumped in flight. They offered me snacks and provided TONS of water during my pumping session. Additionally, on my return flight this afternoon, the Dallas-Love Field gate attendant, Talesa, offered me an empty first-class seat so I could do the same. I am incredibly grateful for the lengths these individuals took to make my role as momma much easier and impressed by the advocacy this company has provided for breast-feeding and pumping. Thank you, #Delta for making being away from my babies a bit more bearable!"
Mde's post has currently received more than 48,000 likes and has been shared over 3,000 times.
"Awesome!" wrote one commenter. "And pumping for triplets is just as amazing! Way to go, wish more companies were this sweet about it! "
"Everything about this is amazing," added another. "Pumping for triplets, support from an airline (yes Delta!), and a strong mama sharing the beautiful story with the rest of us. Let this be another step forward toward a world embracing nursing mamas with open arms."
