Breast-pumping mum of triplets writes open letter to airline

The breastfeeding mum praises flight attendants who let her sit in first class to pump


A breastfeeding mum of triplets has praised Delta Airlines for offering her a free 1st class seat so she could pump milk in private.


Jenna Mde wrote an open letter on Facebook, explaining how important it was for her to not miss a breast-pumping session – especially when travelling.

She publicly thanked the flight attendants who brought her snacks and plenty of water while she pumped and made being away from her babies “a bit more bearable”.

And shared this photo of herself pumping milk at 30,000 feet.


Jenna wrote on Facebook: “As a breastfeeding mother to triplets, it’s important that I not miss a breast-pumping session, especially when traveling. 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.

“They offered me snacks and provided TONS of water during my pumping session. Additionally, on my return flight this afternoon, the Dallas-Love Field gate attendant, Talesa, offered me an empty first-class seat so I could do the same.

“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. Thank you, #Delta for making being away from my babies a bit more bearable!”

Delta Airlines thanked Jenna for her feedback.

“We are very happy to hear that Kaitlin and Loretta were able to be there for you when needed,” they commented on the post.

“We would love to recognise them and pass your kinds words along as we know they would be very touched and happy to know this. Thank you for choosing Delta, we hope to serve you well in the future.”

How nice is that?
