The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has designated NCADA as a Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite. NCADA joins a growing number of Missouri businesses that provide time, a private space and other benefits to support a new mother’s decision to continue breastfeeding after a she returns to work.
The Pumping Station, as NCADA’s private room is affectionately called, is decorated with soft watercolors and is furnished with a comfortable chair, a table, and a small refrigerator. A lending library is also available for expecting parents.
The Pumping Station is not exclusively for employees. Women who attend trainings and community workshops at NCADA are welcome to use the room as well.
