Lactation rooms are scattered throughout UI Health Care buildings, and they provide spaces for lactating employees, volunteers, patients and visitors to express breast milk. See a full list of campus lactation rooms open to UI employees and volunteers.
Employees are encouraged to request lactation room access before returning from maternity leave. To gain access:
- In the hospital, contact email@example.com or call 319-356-2122.
- In the Carver College of Medicine, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some departments or work areas have a private lactation room for their own staff, so ask your administrator if this is the case for your work area. Please encourage patients and visitors to use the public lactation room on the first floor of UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital. No special access is needed for this room.
