Breastfeeding Welcomed Here
Expressing milk is an essential part of having a baby for many mothers, as is returning to work after taking FMLA. The Breastfeeding Welcomed Here campaign aims to normalize pumping at work and raise awareness of the benefits for all employees, including the new mother. The Women’s Center can provide door hangers to nursing or pumping mothers to use on their office doors or other locations when expressing milk.
Interested in participating in the Breastfeeding Welcomed Here campaign? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Need a pump to use on campus? The Women’s Center has a multi-user Medela Symphony pump that is available to the Vanderbilt community for use in our office. Please email us at email@example.com to coordinate a time to use the pump. If you have your own Medela pump, you will need to purchase a converter kit, either here or through the Children’s Hospital or Amazon.
Additionally, Vanderbilt Child and Family Center maintains a lactation space map.
