By 2015 Moms Pump Here officially launched the Moms Pump Here Nursing Room Locator App on the Apple iTunes and Google Play store becoming both a popular breastfeeding baby app and surging mom community website globally. Frustrated nursing moms everywhere immediately showed support by helping the MPH brand grow enormously on social media.

Childbirth, breastpumping, and breastfeeding is never-ending so our demographic is huge and our service never ends.
We have a network of nursing mothers rooms, and moms like you, who have breastfed and breastpumped away from home and rated their nursing spots so we all can learn the safe, comfortable places to make milk for our little ones when we can’t be with them.

About Founder Priya Nembhard:
I'm not just a work from home mom, I was a diehard breastfeeder and breast pumper too. Nursing moms don't always have the luxury to breastfeed or breast pump whenever or whereever they want. Moms Pump Here solves this problem by connecting moms to the closest nursing mothers rooms nearby to express breast milk. At the touch of your tablet or smartphone app, we connect you to our vast list of public or private nursing friendly places nearby or around the world for far traveling mamas. Simply use the Nursing Room Locator's GPS and detailed search feature. That's it!
Safety and Privacy
Hear from a mother about her concerns about sharing breast pumping sites:
“I'm a little worried about the privacy factor…personally I would rather tell people where I have already pumped instead of where I am pumping right now -- I feel like it would scare me to think that other people (weird, strange people) may come check on me or feel strange to know that other people know what I am doing and where I am doing it.” ~ Mom of 3
1. No one can see any user activity (both in the social forum or the check-in/location) on the site unless they're logged in to MomsPumpHere.
2. You have the option to make your current check-in not known. The On-Location "Check-in" feature is done manually, so if you'd rather not let others know where you're nursing right "right now", simply do not Check-In.
3. If you do want other logged in moms to know where you're currently breastfeeding or pumping, then you may "Check-In" manually using the MomsPumpere app or mobile site.
4. All users are approved through a vetting process after creating an account. Approved profiles are vetted within 24 hours. Vetting includes review of users name, address, or social media if listed in their profiles. We want moms to feel as safe as possible on MomsPumHere.
