If you are an expectant parent attending school or working at UW Bothell, you’ll be glad to know about the on-site lactation stations. All lactation stations provide a private, secure, clean space for you to express your milk.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act contains a provision related to expressing breast milk at work. We support breastfeeding parents and regard this legislation as recognition of our lactation program.
