Options for Lactating Students & Employees
Walla Walla Community College recognizes the breastfeeding needs of new mothers by providing a Lactation Room for students and employees. Numerous studies and healthcare recommendations point to breastfeeding for the promotion of optimal infant health. However, it can be a very difficult process for the postpartum professional or collegiate mother returning to work or school. The Lactation Rooms include a mini-fridge, comfortable seating and side table, sanitary supplies, and electrical outlets for breast-pumps. These secure locations provide students and employees the ability to ease back into work or school without having to sacrifice the healthy practice of expressing milk.
