Employee Lactation Program

UNC Health Care understands and values the need for employees returning to work to continue breastfeeding their child for as long as they wish.

Creating and maintaining official Employee Lactation Rooms is an important step towards allowing employees to continue breastfeeding.

A group consisting of employees from Human Resources, Lactation Services and Plant Engineering has been formed to help renovate and update existing Employee Lactation Rooms, as well as create new space to meet the increasing demand for pumping mothers.

Stay Informed!

Join the Employee Lactation Listserv and stay up to date about current room renovations, opening of new Lactation Rooms, as well as educational information from our UNC Hospital Lactation Consultants. Simply email Employee Lactation and ask to join the listserv.
