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 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.
