Lactation Services

The Jean Nidetch Women's Center now has five lactation rooms for faculty, staff, and students to pump or breast feed in a private, clean, and quiet space. We provide a rocking chair and a refrigerator for daily storage. In the JNWC Lactation Room, we also have a Medela Lactina Electric Plus Pump for you to use with your own attachments.

Locations

We encourage you to bring pictures of your children and post them onto our bulletin board.

The JNWC staff would appreciate suggestions on the needs of parents on campus. Please email us at jnwc@unlv.edu or if you use the Lactation Room, please write your suggestions on our bulletin board.
