Lactation rooms and stations throughout acadiana
Sometimes, finding a comfortable, clean, and safe place to nurse is not an easy task. Conveniences like lactation rooms and stations should be the norm, as is breastfeeding! Though they are becoming more common, they are not around every corner yet. As we find breastfeeding-friendly businesses, nursing rooms, and lactation stations/rooms, we will post images and information here. ABC also promotes the Louisiana Breastfeeding Coalitions BREASTFEEDING WELCOME HERE PROJECT , in an effort to help create more breastfeeding-friendly establishments here in Acadiana and all over Louisiana!
In 2015, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette was designated a Breastfeeding-Friendly Workplace Champion by the Mary Amelia Women’s Health Center and the Louisiana Breastfeeding Coalition. UL has adopted a Lactation Accommodation Policy and established three lactation rooms in campus. The lactation rooms are located in the Student Union, Bourgeois Hall, and Saucier Wellness Center. Educational material funded by a grant from the March of Dimes is also available at each location.
