Lactation Support Program

Support for you and your family.

The Lactation Support Program (LSP) provides university affiliates and their partners with lactation consultations, support group meetings, and the use of hospital grade breastpumps located in nearly 50 lactation sites on the UC Davis campus and 20 at UC Davis Health. Community members are able to use our classes and support groups.


REGISTER FOR THE PROGRAM


When you register, you will be provided with site locations in the form of a PDF and google maps, on the immediate Thank You response page. Please save or bookmark this page as site locations are not public for health and safety reasons. Registration takes less than five minutes. 


Lactation Rooms

Lactation rooms can be accessed by completing the short registration process (blue button above).  Room locations/codes are not available to the general public for user health and safety reasons in addition to gaining the ability to establish communications with room users and gather metrics to determine and meet need.  Visitors to UC Davis are welcome to utilize the sites for conferences/meetings, simply register identifying as a visitor when choosing affiliation. 

Most rooms provide hospital grade pumps.  These pumps are also available for temporary "check out" to use in private spaces per department/supervisor request (contact: worklife@ucdavis.edu).  Read "Pump Kits" below to determine what type you need and instructions on use.  Please read "Lactation Room Etiquette" to learn how to best utilize and effectively share the lactation spaces.
