Breastfeeding Support Program

The Breastfeeding Support Program provides university affiliates and their partners with lactation consultations, support group meetings, and the use of hospital grade breastpumps located in close to 40 lactation sites on the UC Davis campus as well as 10 sites at UC Davis Medical Center. UC Davis policy provides a site within a 5 minute walk of every building on campus and at various sites at UCDHS.  

The BFSP is co-sponsored by the Foods for Health Institute and the Womens Resource and Research Center.  Additionally, Optum has provided us with UC Living Well deluxe cooler bags for registered participants.  Just pick one up at any class or support group as well as our office in the Heitman Staff Learning Center!
