Lactation Support Program
Since 2008, Purdue University has been proud to join hundreds of employers across the United States in providing support for their employees and attending students who are breastfeeding mothers. Research has shown lactation support from an employer helps to lower health care costs, turnover rates, and absenteeism while increasing employee and student productivity and morale.
Through the Lactation Support Program, Purdue University Human Resources provides an information packet for expecting mothers, lactation spaces for breastfeeding and resources to help employees and students be successful in their transition back to work or school after having a child.
Please register for the Lactation Support Program. Not only is registration simple and free, but the information you provide will help us continue the program. While registering, you can select the option to receive a mother’s packet with information on what to do when preparing to return to work, as well as other resources for expecting and breastfeeding mothers.
If any employee needs assistance with any portion of the lactation support program, please complete a registration form to detail the request or contact Human Resources – Benefits Administrator, Family Programming at 496-0312.
