College Campuses Are Thinking About Lactation Spaces — But Could Be Doing More
from University of Pennsylvania via Science Daily
A college campus may not seem like a place that requires extensive lactation support. But while most undergraduates don't have children, several populations within these higher-education environments — graduate students, faculty, staff, visitors — may need access to breastfeeding and pumping spaces. Diane Spatz of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has been advocating for and researching the needs of breastfeeding moms for nearly two decades. Most recently, she and colleagues from the Stuart Weitzman School of Design and the Center for Public Health Initiatives, both at Penn, and the Society for College and University Planning turned their attention to the availability of such a resource on college and university campuses.
