Stork’s Nest Charity Fund of Dallas proudly unveils the first of four planned lactation lounges in partnership with Dallas College. This initiative aims to create supportive spaces for breastfeeding moms, starting with the newly opened lactation lounge at Mountain View College. Sponsored by Stork’s Nest Charity Fund, this upgraded mother’s room provides a private, comfortable space for pumping, offering a supportive and inclusive experience for faculty, staff, and student-parents.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 3, 2023, marked the inauguration of this pioneering initiative. “We’re excited to pioneer this partnership, creating spaces that prioritize the needs of lactating moms in our educational system,” remarked Michelle Joubert, Board Chair of Stork’s Nest Charity Fund of Dallas.
This partnership signifies a community-driven effort to enhance campus facilities and support lactating mothers. Having a place to nurse is essential to the mental and physical health of nursing mothers, and the lounge features comfortable chairs, a table, a refrigerator for temporary storage of breast milk, a trash receptacle, and other functional decor items. Breastfed babies typically experience fewer health issues, as breastfeeding lowers the risk of ear infections, diarrhea, and stomach problems.
This initiative representing the first of its kind sets a precedent for inclusive lactation support facilities across educational institutions. Breastfeeding provides significant health advantages for both infants and mothers, the federal government enacted legislation in 2010 mandating that employers furnish breastfeeding employees with designated private spaces and sufficient break time for pumping, should they opt for it. The initiative is part of Project H.E.R. (Health, Education, and Resources), supporting the health and wellness of women in the DFW area.
