Baby Café

Mother nursing her babySt. 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.

Call (320-308-4958) or stop by to arrange time in the Baby Café.
