Miller School Opens New Lactation Room for Nursing Mothers

In its continuing effort to foster a family-friendly environment, the University of Miami has opened another dedicated room to support nursing mothers. The Miller School now has its fifth and newest room on the second floor of University of Miami Hospitals and Clinics, 1475 NW 12th Avenue, room 1405. Faculty, staff, and students who need a private place to express milk may reserve space on a first-come, first-served basis by completing a Nursing Mother Accommodation Request Form.

UM supports nursing mothers by providing them reasonable break time to express breast milk for a year after their child’s birth, and having a lactation room supports the nutritional needs of newborn babies and strengthens the bond between mother and baby. The University is pleased that our nursing mothers will be able to successfully balance their important priorities of family and work through on-site lactation support and urge supervisors and coworkers to lend their support in allowing nursing mothers dedicated time for this.

For guidelines and a list of other lactation rooms across all campuses, please review the Nursing Mothers Program webpage. For general questions about the program, please contact the Office of Workplace Equity and Performance at 305-243-9360 or wep@miami.edu.
