    A special bus stops in Asheville to give nursing moms a little support.

    The Breast Express is a 40-foot RV, traveling the country to raise awareness about breastfeeding.

    It also gives moms a comfortable space to nurse.

    Amy Van Haren founded an app called Pumpspotting to help breastfeeding moms find safe places to nurse, and to connect with one another--which sparked the idea for the RV.

    "We decided if we were going to build a true community of support, we needed to get on the road, talk to as many moms as possible, in as many places," Van Haren said.

    The bus is traveling 10,000 miles across the country, from Boston to San Francisco, to reach out to moms.

    Aeroflow Healthcare partnered to bring Pumpspotting to Asheville.
