Lactation Locations

 

Congratulations!

Congratulations on the new addition to your family. Motherhood is an amazing journey and as a mom who may be taking classes or working, you have some additional things to consider when returning to your education/career after the arrival of your child. Please feel free to utilize our resources by noting where our lactation areas are on campus. You may wish to read our sample letter to instructors/employers about the benefits of allowing workplace flexibility for nursing moms. We hope that your transition back to ISU is a positive experience for you and your family.

Lactation Locations at Iowa State University

Several of the Lactation Locations listed below are located in the Lounge Space of Women's Restrooms. The Lactation Location within these areas is designated and private from the restroom area. Each location has an electricity outlet available for your use. You will find a "Lactation Mother at Work" Privacy sign for your use. The opposite of the sign explains that "This Space is Reserved" for use when the space is vacant. Ideally, a mother needing to use the Lactation Locations for expressing breast milk will feel comfortable and not have to ask others for the space.
