NCSU Lactation Support Info

NC State University has some wonderful resources for our working moms and students that are breastfeeding.  

Lactation Support

NC State University promotes work/life balance and supports working parents with the transition back to work following the birth of a child. This includes support of nursing mothers who wish to express breast milk periodically during the work day. In accordance with provisions of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), upon request, suitable space must be provided for employees who require lactation support.

NC State currently has 20 lactation rooms located around campus. These are available for use by all staff, faculty and students. Each room has a contact person who can help you with accessing the room.  Most of the rooms may be reserved through Google Calendar. Instructions for reserving the rooms are provided below, followed by the locations and contact information for the rooms. After you have reserved a room, please contact the person listed to obtain the key to the room.

Breast-fed children less likely to develop type 1 diabetes

Breast-fed children less likely to develop type 1 diabetes

Youths who received any breast-feeding for at least 12 months or full breast-feeding for at least six months had lower odds of developing type 1 diabetes, compared with those who were never breast-fed, Norwegian researchers reported in Diabetes Care. The findings were based on data involving 155,392 children in Denmark and Norway followed from birth until 2014 or 2015.

Dear Lactation Support Community,

The North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition is in the process of cataloging as many of the lactation support services as we can across the state of North Carolina.

The resulting resource will be presented at the North Carolina Lactation Consultant Association Breastfeeding Summit on May 21-22, and we will also plan to make it available on our website. 

We hope that this resource will allow us, as providers of lactation support, to collaborate more effectively, as well as target grants and funding streams to places where they are most needed. 

Please take a moment to complete this survey (estimated completion time 2-7 minutes) which will ask you about the lactation resources specific to your area.

The more people we are able to reach with this survey, the more we can inform our community, so please also forward it on to colleagues!

While we have your attention, please also consider adding your information to ZipMilk NC, a resource that lists all breastfeeding resources by zipcode.

Thank you for your participation!
