Why is it recommended the use of the unique and specific MimmaMà® chair?
The correct posture
The maternal lactation takes various times and sometimes is very long, for that reason it is recommended to choose the most comfortable position to avoid postural pain. Mother must be relaxed, with her back straight and perfectly adherent to the MimmaMà's backrest, her feet resting on the MimmaMa's footrest at the suitable distance to maintain her correct posture.
The MimmaMà® nursing chair offers optimal support for shoulders, arms, back and lumbar area. Its armrests' width, height and roundness support the mother and her child, keeping her baby to the right position in full comfort, assuring a correct attachment to her nipples, avoiding the annoying fissures. Being able to change the different positions in absolute comfort, the mother empties all her milk ducts avoiding mastitis.
The soft footrest, placed under the base of MimmaMà N, can be extracted using the tip of the mother's foot. It allows the mother to maintain her correct posture without slipping. After the breast-feeding the footrest can be inserted back into the MimmaMà's base by pushing it with heels,thus allowing the mother to get up without danger. A soft, fireproof and antibacterial pillow helps to keep the baby in the correct position expecially when the baby is very small.

How it was born
MimmaMà® was designed by Mitzi Bollani, in 2007 on the request of Dr. Stefania Sani, Director of Neonatology and Paediatric Ward of the Pistoia Hospital. Dr Sani had the sensitivity to search an effective and innovative response to facilitating and continuing the breastfeeding, solving the nursing mothers' difficulties and pains. MimmaMà® has not a hospital connotation: it is a sculpture, the poetic image of a woman who welcomes the new mother to give her relief, protection and support while feeding her baby. That was the first idea of the architect Mitzi Bollani who designed it: the hug of a mother - a gift - a wish - an aid.
Often Mothers live their first difficulties in nursing their babies with anxiety, almost they feel inadequate. They have the concern that her baby does not eat enough, they soffer for mastitis and ragadis, and post partum pain : those things deprive the mothers of the magic of this tender and priceless moment, leading them to choose the infant formula.
Mitzi Bollani modeled MimmaMà® armchair giving it a particular shape of the sitting to avoid the pressure in the perineal area and offer good lumbar, back, arms and legs support. The high, wide, thick and rounded armrests help mothers to relax and easy high, large and support their babies in all the breast-feeding positions, facilitating the emptying of milk ducts to avoid the risk of the painful mastitis.
Proper body posture prevents contractures and pains due to uncomfortable long-held positions. Without pains, Moms soon learn how to keep their babies in the nursing positions. MimmaMà® was modeled in detail to find ergonomic solutions to be adapted to every person, without mechanical adjustments.
