Columbia Community Feedback

Breastfeeding Support

I was very glad that Columbia offers this service and it made my work much less stressful knowing I had a place to pump each day.

Thanks to your office, I was able to nurse my first child for over a year and hope to do the same for my second. I could never have done that if I had to pump in a bathroom somewhere. Thanks for your support!

The lactation room has been critical in helping me continue to breastfeed my child, and I am very grateful that it is available for us to use.

The lactation rooms have been such an essential part of my return to school!

I am overwhelmed with all these wonderful resources Columbia provides!

Thanks so much for setting me up and helping me navigate the resources here. It helped me extend breastfeeding a lot longer than I would have been able to accomplish otherwise.

Great experience, so valuable.  hospital grade pumps are fantastic, and the only reason i was able to breastfeed my second child LONGER than my first!  Made it over a year, thank you, thank you!

I don’t have a private office so the lactation rooms were essential, and having such a great setup (fridge, lockers, nearby sink, Symphony pump, and comfy private room) made everything so easy.

Having access to these rooms was the deciding factor in allowing me to continue with my graduate program at SIPA, and so I am most grateful to you and to all your colleagues for the support. I literally used it every two hours for a matter of months! My family and I could not have made it work otherwise. I am so incredibly grateful that I never had to make the choice between providing the best nutrition for my child and my academic and career ambitions.

Thank you so much for this vital service …  The benefits will be far reaching for all of our children.  Please continue to make CUMC a baby and family friendly place to work!

I couldn't have made it through the past few semesters without [the lactation room]!  Thanks again.
