    Default Lactation Station!

    Hi all! I know many of you struggle with finding good places to pump. I'm truly not trying to brag, but I used my work's lactation station today, and it was great. They just built a new building, and there is a room for nursing or pumping. It's got outlets, a phone, a sink, magazines, little wipes, a computer comfortable chairs. All for nursing moms!! The light is nice, it has a privacy lock, it's just great.

    I know so many of us work so hard to pump. I just wanted all of you who struggle to know that the world is catching up with us, and that in some places, a pumping station isn't some dusty dirty closet. Keep up your hard work, if we keep doing this, maybe more change like this will happen.

    How cool.

    We just keep doing it and it will be "back to normal".

    That is great! Thanks for sharing.

    That's awesome mama! *insert jealous smiley here*

    Just curious... do you work in a hospital or healthcare? Seems to me like hospitals are more inclined to have a lactation room than most other employers... After baby #2 is born this October, I will have to scope out a new place to pump here at work... the private office I used to use to pump (which was previously vacant) is now occupied, so that is something I'll have to work on.

    Isn't it great? We have those facilities at my employer as well (a large financial services company). There is a private lactation room on each floor. It is inside one of the restrooms and you have to have special badge / card access to get into the lactation room (as approved by the occupational health department). There is a refrigerator, carpeted floor, table/chair, sink, it's great. I'll be using it when I return from my upcoming maternity leave! We are very fortunate to have such facilities.

    I'm a nurse of maternity floor and we have a pumping room. It is really nice, it has 2 recliners a couch and a tv. They also supply the pumps so we have 2 symphony pumps and one lactina. Very nice.
