1:49 p.m., Oct. 4, 2012--As the Affordable Health Care Act dictates that reasonable accommodations be made for nursing mothers, the University of Delaware continues to support that practice by providing two secure spaces designated as “nursing mothers rooms.”

These rooms are a safe, clean, private and comfortable space for mothers to express breast milk for their infant children.

In memoriam

UD professors and students remember Alexis DeFrancesco as a diligent student who liked to sit in the front row and as an outgoing and caring friend.

One location can be found in Hullihen Hall, Room 346, across from the Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI). The room provides accessible outlets for a breast pump, a television and a space heater. Those who wish to access the space to express milk should call OEI at 831-8063 and schedule a time beforehand.

The second room, located in the Perkins Student Center, Room 128, provides mothers with comfortable seating, a sink and easily accessible outlets for a breast pump. This room is available when Perkins Student Center is open and operates on a first-come, first-served basis.

The UD policy on accommodations for nursing mothers in the workplace can be found on the University's personnel policies website.

For questions regarding the nursing mother rooms, contact the Office of Equity and Inclusion at 831-8063.

For questions regarding the UD policy, contact Office of Labor Relations at 831-2114.
