Working Mothers Program

We'd like to congratulate you on the birth of your child. We expect you will find it rewarding as you settle into your role as the parent of an infant while focusing on your career at Brookhaven Lab.

BNL provides a supportive environment to enable breastfeeding employees to express their milk during working hours.

Brookhaven National Lab (BNL) is pleased to offer a Workplace Lactation Program to support Mothers returning to work.

A lactation room has been established to further support the needs of women who may wish to continue breastfeeding after they return to work from maternity leave. This is one avenue to support the Lab’s commitment to the attraction and retention of a diverse workforce.

Our first room is located in Building 490, Rm. 8-13. We plan to open at least one more room on the BNL site. The next room to open will be located in the NSLS-II building.

We value your contributions to the Lab and we recognize that continuing to breastfeed after you return to work can be somewhat challenging. It is our hope that availability of the lactation room will help to make your transition back to work less challenging.

For more information please refer to BNL’s Workplace Lactation Support Program Policy.
