Lactation Spaces and Breastfeeding Support


on the new addition to your family! Motherhood is an amazing journey, and as a mom who may be taking classes or working, you have some additional things to consider when returning to campus after the arrival of your child. As a new mom, you may have chosen to breastfeed your new baby. Please feel free to utilize our resources by noting where our lactation spaces are on campus. You may wish to read our sample letter to supervisors about the benefits of allowing workplace flexibility for nursing moms.

Iowa State University is committed to assisting employee and student-parents balance work, classes and family. Through partnerships with college and department leadership, family-friendly resources have been developed, following best practices - in accordance with national health care laws and standards.

We hope that your transition back to ISU is a positive experience, and that you will feel supported in your family responsibilities.
