Jenna Mde is a breastfeeding mother to triplets — aka Superwoman — and being away from her three babies for a couple days was difficult enough without having to also worry about keeping her milk supply up while she was gone. Enter Delta Airlines and three flight attendants who made her two flights between Dallas and Atlanta comfortable and being away from her children a bit more bearable.

In a post to Delta's Facebook page, Jenna thanked the flight attendants who allowed her to take an empty first class seat both ways — and provided her with snacks and water — so that she could pump with a bit more space, privacy, and comfort. She said of the experience, "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 breastfeeding and pumping."

It's lovely to see Delta making a change after they didn't allow a mother to take her pumped milk on a flight last year.
