Nursing Nests

Supporting New Orleans Moms and Babies

In 2022, Touro is partnering with local businesses and community organizations to establish free “Nursing Nests” for moms and babies throughout the Greater New Orleans area.

What is a Nursing Nest?

A nursing nest is a safe, private space for moms to nurse and care for their baby in public locations throughout the Greater New Orleans area.

Nursing Nests look different based on their locations. Some are housed within a facility; others are freestanding nursing pods.
