Nursing Mother's Room Information and Guidelines



ABOUT THE NURSING MOTHER’S ROOM

 

What is the Nursing Mother’s Room?

 

The Nursing Mother’s Room is a clean, private place where nursing employees and students can relax enough to express milk.  The milk is then stored (elsewhere) and taken home for use when a mother is away from her baby.  The room is private and dedicated only to lactation so it does not compete with other work functions or schedules.

 

Who can use the room?

 

The room is available to any Teachers College employee or student who is nursing.  Consideration of availability is given to guests as needed.

 

What does the room provide?

 

The room is accessible only through a security code provided by the Office of Human Resources.  It is a secure location with chairs, a table, an electrical outlet, a sink, and proper cleaning supplies.  Refrigeration is not provided in the room, so please prepare to store your breast milk as needed.

 

How can I start using the room?

 

Please visit the Human Resources Office in 120 Whittier or contact your HR Generalist to register and submit your schedule.

 

Where is the Nursing Mother’s Room located?

 

The Nursing Mother’s Room is located on the first floor of Thompson Hall in 139A.  This is just west of the Student Accounts and Financial Aid Offices.
