Breastfeeding Support

LSlogo

Congratulations!  As a student, faculty or staff member at UNC, you will be glad to know that we have many options to support your decision to breastfeed your child when you return to work or school including two Lactation Stations on campus.

UNC's Breastfeeding Lactation Stations are sponsored by the Women's Resource Center and the Dietetics and Nutrition Program and serve students, faculty, and staff who choose to continue to breastfeed after returning to school or work.

 

We are poud to announce UNC recieved the Breastfeeding Friendly Business Award from Weld County! Awards are given to businesses that develop creative solutions to support breastfeeding mothers and employees.

The Colorado Workplace Accommodations for Nursing Mothers Act (2008) establishes a standard for an employer to:

  • Provide reasonable unpaid break time, or allow an employee to use paid break and/or meal time to express breast milk for her nursing child for up to 2 years after the child’s birth
  • Make reasonable efforts to provide a nursing mother with a private location in close proximity to her work area (other than a toilet stall) in which to express breast milk
  • Not discriminate against women for expressing breast milk in the workplace
The Lactation Accommodation Request Form can assist you with having a conversation with your employer about your breastfeeding desire when you return to work.
