Update on Lactation Rooms at UNC Charlotte

Lactation Support Policy

On July 1, 2010 the N.C. Office of State Personnel approved a Lactation Support Policy designed to assist working mothers’ return to the workplace after the birth of a child. Under this policy, which followed recent federal legislation, all state agencies and public universities are required to provide space, privacy and time for nursing mothers to express breast milk.

“A Mother’s Place,” located in the College of Health and Human Services, Room 305, and “A Mother’s Place, Too,” located in Atkins Library, Room G38 are spaces that have been set aside specifically for this purpose. These facilities are open to students, staff, faculty and visitors.

Individuals interested in using or visiting “A Mother’s Place” or “A Mother’s Place, Too” are welcome and should contact Colette Townsend-Chambers at 704-687-7918 or Loraine Ford at 704-687-7919 (A Mother’s Place, CHHS 305) or Cindy Edwards at 704-687-0658 or at ckedward@uncc.edu or Adeleen Ashley at 704-687-0650 or at  aashle13@uncc.edu (A Mother’s Place, Too, Atkins G38).
