Research has shown that breast-fed babies are healthier than those who are bottle-fed. Employers are recognizing that breastfeeding parents will likely need fewer sick days to care for infants who are breast-fed. But, it may be difficult to return to work and continue breastfeeding. There are many things that U-M can do to support new parents in their commitment to breastfeeding.
A highlight among our resources is a list of lactation rooms across the Ann Arbor campuses, including Michigan Medicine. If you have any questions about these lactation spaces, reach out to the listed contact for each room or area.
To advocate for additional lactation space in a particular building, reach out to the listed contact person, the building facility manager or human resource (HR) manager. As a last resort, email us, and we will try to find a contact person in your area.
The Work-Life Resource Center does not create, fund, manage, equip, or arrange to clean the lactation rooms in campus and Michigan Medicine buildings. Please email or call the listed contact on the list of lactation rooms, or building or HR staff.
