The Mom Got Kicked Out Because She Was Pregnant, Now She Shows Them They Made A Mistake
This New Mom Was Kicked Out of Her Gym's Locker Room for Breastfeeding
Eight weeks after giving birth, Tiffany Hoag attempted to nurse her child in public for the first time – and was met with backlash she didn't expect,Peoplereports.
After working out at her local Oklahoma YMCA, Hoag went to the women's locker room to nurse her son; another new mom was nursing there as well. But soon, a staff member approached them, asking them to move to the "family" locker room. When they arrived, they found that the space was simply a bathroom with a shower and a small plastic seat – there wasn't even a diaper-changing table. She called the conditions "disgusting," and showed photos on Facebook of towels left on the floor.
According to KFOR-TV, Oklahoma law lets mothers breastfeed anywhere they have the right to be. Hoag and other supporters organized a small "nurse-in" at the YMCA this weekend in protest.
"The first time I nurse [my son] in public I am met with no support from fellow Oklahoman women," Hoag wrote on Facebook. "I am completely embarrassed and disgusted." She told KFOR-TV that she's nervous about nursing in public again.
The YMCA said they're trying to figure out what happened, and released a statement:
"The Y is a place for families, and we support breastfeeding moms in our facilities. We believe this was likely an unfortunate mistake with our staff member misinterpreting our locker room policy, which states that children are not allowed in adult locker rooms. We are looking into this particular incident further with the staff members involved in an effort to ensure that no other moms have this happen in the future.
