LSUHSC- Lactation Room
A lactation room is a private room designated to breastfeed or pump and store breastmilk. It is widely accepted that infants should be exclusively breastfed for the six months. Breastfeeding provides numerous physical and mental benefits for mother and baby. Employers benefit from lower health care cost, lower rates of absenteeism, and increased morale.
Without a designated space, nursing mothers must figure out where to pump and how to store breastmilk which can be stressful and detrimental to the breastfeeding relationship.
