UCO provides designated lactation areas on campus for faculty, staff, and students to support women balancing their work and study commitments with their needs as mothers of young children. Each location offers a clean, comfortable, and private environment for nursing mothers to pump breast milk during their time on campus.
UCO has been recognized as a Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite-Gold Star Employer by the Oklahoma State Department of Health, the Coalition of Oklahoma Breastfeeding Advocates, and the Oklahoma Healthy Birth Alliance. Gold Star Employers are those who have not only met all of the minimum criteria necessary for recognition as an Oklahoma Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite, but who have exceeded the criteria in at least three "optional" areas of support for employees who wish to nurse their children.
In addition, UCO has a Certified Breastfeeding Educator on staff that is available to partner with you so that you can reach your personal breastfeeding goals while on campus.
Please visit the Lactation Support website for additional information and campus locations.
