Lactation rooms

lactation room iconPCC supports breastfeeding and welcomes nursing mothers to our campuses. Women are welcome to breastfeed anywhere on campus as long as they are comfortable. They also are invited to use these designated private spaces set aside for nursing mothers.

Lactation room locations
