The lactation rooms offer a dedicated, hygienic, private and quiet space for nursing mothers to pump their breast milk during their time at work. The private rooms contain comfortable chairs, electrical outlets, a sink with running water, a refrigerator for milk storage, lock boxes for securing stored milk, and antimicrobial cleaning supplies. The lactation room located in Bldg. 490, Room 8-13 also has a distress alarm and telephone.
Mothers are encouraged to register to enroll in the lactation program and agree to the established guidelines in order to use the facility. The purpose of the enrollment is to track participation in the program as well as ensure that mothers agree and adhere to the established guidelines.
All nursing mothers who are employees and guests must register with Human Resources/Occupational Medicine (HROM) to use the room on an ongoing basis. There is no fee for the use of the lactation room.
