Starting this semester, nursing mothers will have a private space to facilitate production and storage of breast milk at Western Nevada College.
A Lactorium has been created in Room 109A in the Student Center, located on the first floor of the Dini Building. Funding for the Lactorium was provided by Carson City Health and Human Services.
The room will not only provide privacy and comfort for moms, it will enable them to keep up their “liquid gold” supply for their child and have a place to store it until they go home. The room will include a small refrigerator for storing their milk.
The grand opening for the Lactorium is set for Monday, Sept. 14.
