More access for pumping mums?

Reporter Hamilton Press

Waikato mum of two, Sheena Thompson, is calling out shopping centres for not having accessible power sockets or private rooms for pumping mums in parenting facilities.

It's not uncommon for mums to pump breast milk in hot cars, cleaning cupboards, shower stalls or in disabled toilets due to a lack of lactation rooms. Are you a mum who's struggled with this?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Auckland and Waitakere already have the courts, now Justice Minister Andrew Little has announced one for Hamilton.

"It's not like any court you have ever experienced before," Alcohol and Drug Community Support Trust director Stephen King has previously said. "It's almost like a quasi therapy, but it does have the power of the district court judge there."
