Designated Places for Breastfeeding and/or Pumping Breast milk

OHSU has designated several locations throughout its campuses where women can either breastfeed their babies or pump breast milk for later use. Any private space within or near an employee's department or unit may also be appropriate. We encourage you to work with your manager to identify an appropriate location and to develop a plan that accommodates your schedule and work responsibilities.

See list of designated lactation areas

Lactation Guidelines for OHSU Managers

As a manager, be sure you understand the OHSU employee breastfeeding policy and the law concerning breastfeeding and/or pumping breast milk in the workplace. Employees need adequate time and privacy to bresfeed or express milk.
