In addition to creating a private space for breastfeeding moms to pump milk, employers must also provide reasonable break time. Until the baby has its first birthday, nursing moms may take time to get to the lactation room as well as the time needed for the pumping sessions themselves. Typically that's a 20 minute period every three or four hours during the work day, but it will vary depending on the needs of the mother and child.
While some employers view the lactation room as a helpful work-life benefit to the employee that increases loyalty and productivity, it actually helps the employer as well. Research has shown that corporate lactation programs help new mothers avoid taking time off work due to a sick child. Indeed, the nonprofit Every Mother cites a 77 percent reduction in lost work time among firms with lactation support and twice as many one-day absences among employees whose babies aren't breastfed.
In the days before the lactation room law, nursing moms got creative in pumping breast milk. Some would simply pump in their offices with the door close -- a practice that continues today. Others claimed an empty break room or even pumped breast milk sitting at their cubicle, with a large blanket or shawl thrown over their torsos for privacy. We have certainly come a long way from that time!
