Delta Went Above And Beyond For This Breastfeeding Mom Of Triplets


A breastfeeding mom shared words of praise after Delta Air Lines went above and beyond to accommodate her need to pump.

"As a breastfeeding mother to triplets, it's important that I not miss a breast-pumping session, especially when traveling," she wrote in the post.

"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," the mom continued. "They offered me snacks and provided TONS of water during my pumping session."

Evans added that she received similar treatment on her return flight to back to Atlanta and thanked that flight attendant as well.

"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," the mom concluded. "Thank you, #‎Delta for making being away from my babies a bit more bearable!"

The post quickly went viral, receiving almost 50,000 likes in 72 hours. Delta Air Lines thanked Evans for sharing her story in the comments section.

"We are very happy to hear that Kaitlin and Loretta were able to be there for you when needed," the comment reads. "We would love to recognize them and pass your kinds words along as we know they would be very touched and happy to know this. If you would, please send a Private Message with your Confirmation code for review. Thank you for choosing Delta, we hope to serve you well in the future!"

Evans' positive story is a departure from the many distressing experiences nursing moms have reported after air travel.

Here's hoping this is an indication of great progress for pumping moms in transit.
