St. Cloud State University mothers will soon have
access to a comfortable, private space designed specifically for
breastfeeding or expressing milk. With financial support from the
CentraCare Health Foundation, the SCSU Women's Center is renovating
an area of its new facility-on the corner of 5 th Avenue and 6
th Street South -to provide a lactation room for student and employees.
Scheduled to open in March 2004, the lactation room, dubbed Baby
Café, will contain a rocking chair, changing table, hospital-grade
electric breast pump for women who don't own a pump or prefer not
to bring their from home, and a refrigerator for temporary storage
of breast milk.
For over 14 years the Women's Center mission has been to promote
women and respond to issues affecting the status of women on campus
and in the larger society. Having a lactation room at the center
is another step towards our mission.
