However, the rate of breastfeeding is as low as 30% in some groups of women. While some women are unable to breastfeed, others simply choose not to.

A lactation room
in its simplest form is a private space where a nursing mother can express breast milk for her baby. In some companies, new moms use their private offices as lactating rooms, and either lock their doors or put up privacy signs so nobody walks into the room while the woman's breasts are exposed. In others, the employer creates a separate space where new moms can pump breast milk in private. This may be due to the predominance of cubicle farms among that employer's workforce, or simply for the convenience of employees.
Under the U.S. lactation room law
, employers must provide a private space for nursing mothers to express breast milk for their babies. The lactation room design should include a comfortable chair and a flat surface for a breast pump to rest. Most importantly, lactation rooms in the workplace must be private and must protect the breastfeeding mom from being seen by co-workers or the general public while pumping breast milk.
Smaller companies, those with fewer than 50 employees, may obtain an exemption from creating a corporate lactation program by demonstrating it would create an undue hardship.
