Jackson Library Nursing Mother's Room

The Jackson Library lactation room, also known as the mommy room, is located in Jackson Library, Tower room 570. Students, employees and visitors who are seeking a private place to pump or to breastfeed may request the key at the Checkout desk. Jackson Library operating hours vary, and at times library access is limited to UNCG students and employees.

The room features the following:

  • Hospital grade Medela Symphony breast pump. Users must supply their own Symphony pump kit (kits for Medela home pumps such as the Pump in Style are not compatible with hospital-grade pumps).
  • Gliding rocker and ottoman
  • Baby wipes, hand sanitizer, and paper towels
  • Located near a women's restroom (no sink in the room itself)
  • Wireless Internet access

Breastfeeding mothers are also welcome to bring their own pump or their baby (if they prefer to breastfeed in a private room). Room use is limited to 60 minutes. There is no reservation system at this time. Mothers need to make their own arrangements for storing milk, such as an insulated lunch bag with ice pack, and for cleaning and sterilizing their pump parts. Before visiting the room for the first time, new or expecting mothers are urged to contact one of the following members of the Breastfeeding Promotion Committee for more information:

Lea Leininger, Health Sciences Librarian
Ann Perdue, Jackson Library Stacks and Remote Storage Manager
