Lactation Spaces at UMKC

Are you a nursing mother on campus in need of a private place to use a breast pump or to nurse your baby? There are places on campus that have space available.

While some women prefer to nurse their babies in a private, quiet, distraction-free environment, it is important to stress that this is a choice, not a requirement. Missouri law (R.S.Mo.191.198) gives a woman the legal right to nurse her baby in public. Please visit the Breastfeeding Law website for specific, detailed information.
