Find Support on Campus

Choosing how or what to feed your baby is a personal decision. If breastfeeding is right for you, UNCG wants to provide you with the support you need to successfully combine work or school and breastfeeding.

Did you Know ?

In order to support working mothers who desire to continue breastfeeding upon returning to work, the federal government passed a law in 2011 as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requiring employers to allow mothers break time and private space for expressing breast milk.

This legislation was enacted to ensure accessibility for mothers who desire to continue breastfeeding at work.Read more about how the new law provides for nursing mothers. Don’t hesitate to talk to your supervisor about your plans to feed your baby or express milk throughout the workday.
