"Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) installed a Lactation Suite, designed to offer mothers a private, clean and well-designed space to pump or nurse while traveling through the airport.
The free-standing pod is located just past security between Concourses A and C. It offers duel seating for a mother and companion, as well as a convenient fold-down table, power outlet for breast pump, mirror, soft lighting and space for luggage and/or stroller."
